Summer appearances

Algeria made its Paralympic Games début at the 1992 Summer Paralympics in Barcelona, sending two competitors in athletics, and a goalball team. The country has taken part in every edition of the Summer Paralympics since then, but has never participated in the Winter Paralympics.[1]

Algerians have won a total of 38 medals at the Paralympic Games, of which 15 gold, 7 silver and 16 bronze. Mohamed Allek won Algeria's first two gold medals at the 1996 Games, in the men's 100m and 200m sprints, T36 category. He won three more gold medals, also in sprinting, in 2000. In 2004, his only medal was a bronze, while five other Algerian athletes won a total of seven gold medals: Karim Betina in the men's shot put (F32); Sofia Djelal in the women's discus and javelin (F56-58); Nadia Medjemedj in the women's shot put (F56-58); Samir Nouioua in the men's 1,500m and 5,000m in athletics (T46); and Messaoud Nine in judo (men's up to 90 kg). In 2008, Karim Betina again took a gold in the shot put, as did Kamel Kardjena, while Sid Ali Lamri and Messaoud Nine took a gold medal each in judo.[1]
