Summer Games

Burundi made its Paralympic Games début at the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing, sending three male athletes to compete in racing events for arm amputees (T46 category). None of them won a medal, although Rémy Nikobimeze did come fifth (out of 15) in the 5,000m race.[1]

Burundi has never taken part in the Winter Paralympics.[2]
