Summer Paralympics appearances

Fiji competed at the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing, China. The country's delegation consisted of a single athlete, visually impaired sprinter Ranjesh Prakash, who competed in two events in athletics. Prakash was also his country's flagbearer during the Games' opening ceremony.[1]

High jumper Iliesa Delana was initially reported in May 2007 as having qualified for the Games,[2] but it was later reported that he had "fallen short during trials".[3]
