PARASPORTS. PARALYMPIC SPORTS.

Parasport is an umbrella term used for sports practised by para-athletes.

 

The term parasports and para-athletes refer to grassroots and elite levels; they support a focus on the abilities of athletes and are sought to replace terms such as disability sports.

 

Paralympic sports, on the other hand, is more specific as it is a reference term to the sports on the Paralympic programme.
