The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland competed as Great Britain at the 1984 Winter Paralympics in Innsbruck, Austria. Britain's twenty-two athletes competed in all three sports: cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and ice sledge speed racing. For the first time in its Winter Paralympic history, Britain won medals, albeit no gold; British athletes obtained four silver medals and six bronze - the country's best performance at the Winter Paralympics until they achieved their first gold medal in 2014, and still the best performance in terms of number of medals won.[1]
