Germany (1992–)

The German Democratic Republic (commonly known as East Germany) made its first and only Paralympic Games appearance at the 1984 Summer Paralympics in Stoke Mandeville and New York, where it entered four competitors in athletics. East Germany never took part in the Winter Paralympics. Thus the country's tally at the 1984 Summer Games (three silver medals and one bronze) is also its all-round Paralympic Games tally.[1]

From 1992 onwards, a reunified German team competed at the Paralympics.
