Slovakia as such made its Paralympic Games début at the 1994 Winter Paralympics in Lillehammer, following the break-up of Czechoslovakia, which had taken part in the Paralympics from 1972 to 1992. Slovakia has taken part in every edition of both the Summer and Winter Paralympics since then.[1]

Among Slovakia's most successful athletes, Jozef Mistina won four of the country's five medals at the 1994 Games: three silver and a bronze in alpine skiing. He won four medals again (two silver and two bronze) in 1998.[2]

In 2010, Slovakia won its first Winter gold medals, with Henrieta Farkasova and Jakub Krako each winning three gold and a silver in visually impaired alpine skiing. This led to Slovakia's best ever result at the Paralympic Games: the country ranked fourth on the medal table.[3]
