Summer Games

Trinidad and Tobago made its Paralympic Games début at the 1984 Summer Paralympics in Stoke Mandeville and New York. For its first participation, the country sent eight athletes (seven men and one woman) to compete in athletics, swimming and weightlifting. Its three medals (two gold and a bronze) were all won by the same athlete, Rachael Marshall. The country competed again in the 1988 Summer Games, with a reduced delegation of four athletes (all men), in athletics, table tennis and weightlifting. They won no medals. Trindad and Tobago has not competed again at the Paralympics since that date, and has never participated in the Winter Paralympics.[1]

The country's three medals (of which two gold) place it 72nd on the all-time Paralympic Games medal table.
