Summer Games

Hong Kong made its Paralympic Games début at the 1972 Summer Paralympics in Heidelberg, and has taken part in every subsequent edition of the Summer Paralympics. It has never participated in the Winter Paralympics.[1]

Hong Kong has won a total of 92 Paralympic medals, of which 32 gold, 27 silver and 33 bronze. The country's first gold medals came in 1984, when Hong Kong won the women's 4x400m Relay in categories 2-5 in athletics. Mui Y. L. also won an individual gold in the women's 1,500m, category 3; and Fung Yuet Wah took gold in the women's individual foil (categories 4-5) in wheelchair fencing. Table tennis was the source of all three gold medals won in 1992, as Hong Kong players won the women's team event in category 5, the men's team in category 4, and Kwong Kam Shing won the men's singles in category 5. In 1996, it was the men's 4x100m relay (T34) which yielded gold in athletics, accompanying four gold medals in men's wheelchair fencing events. Wheelchair fencing has provided gold medals for Hong Kong in every subsequent edition of the Summer Paralympics, as has athletics. Lai Wai Ling added a gold medal in table tennis (category 11) in 2000, whereas boccia provided two gold in 2004, and one in 2008. Hong Kong's most successful competitors, with five gold medals each, are Yu Chui Yee, Chan Yui Chong and Fung Ying Ki, all in wheelchair fencing.[2]
