Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games

The humble origins of the Paralympics belies the extravagance that we have seen recently in Beijing. On the opening day of the 1948 Summer Games in London, a group of British WWII patients with spinal cord injuries took part in a sports competition organised by Dr. Ludwig Guttman of Stoke Mandeville Hospital. The games were held again four years later at the same hospital in which Dutch patients also competed. The first official Paralympic Games were held after the Rome Olympics in 1960 and was no longer exclusively for war veterans.
