The Extremity Games is an adaptive sports competition, similar to the X Games, for athletes with amputations and limb differences. The Extremity Games was started by College Park Industries, a manufacturer of prosthetic feet, in the summer of 2006 in Orlando, Florida. Competitors perform in many different sports, categories and styles, trying to win bronze, silver and gold medals, as well as prizes and money. In addition to the competitions there are instructional clinics held in each of the sports in which trainers instruct new-comers on basics of the sport. Vital to the experience of the Extremity Games is the live music, interactive exhibit area, and featured demonstration sports that are operating concurrently with the competitions.
Organized to raise awareness of the abilities of people with limb loss or limb difference, Extremity Games provides the opportunity for athletes to compete peer-to-peer, limb loss-to-limb loss, while competing for cash and other prizes. Extremity Games hosts athletes primarily from across the US and several athletes from around the world. Extremity Games proves “There’s No Replacement for the Competitive Spirit™”.
