Description (Brief)
Schedule of events for the 2004 Paralympic Games, held in conjunction with the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece. This was collected by the donor, Patricia Mink at the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece
The first Paralympic Games were held in Rome in 1960, a week after the Summer Olympics. This tradition of holding the games for athletes with disabilities after the Olympics continues today. These first games were for wheelchair users only, but in 1976 athletes with other disabilities were welcomed. In that same year adaptive athletes from the Winter Olympics were also embraced. The 1996 games in Atlanta marked a turning point as the first games to fully include the Paralympic athletes and events under the Team USA banner.
