Bangladesh made its Paralympic Games début at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens, sending a single representative (Mokshud Mokshud) to compete in athletics. Mokshud entered only the men's 400m T46 sprint, and failed to advance past the heats, clocking by far the slowest time. In 1:15.90, he was the only athlete to run the race in more than a minute. In 2008, the country once more had a single representative, Abdul Quader Suman. Visually impaired Suman ran the men's 100m sprint in the T12 category, and recorded the slowest time in the heats (16.63s), thus finishing his participation in the Games.
