The Gambia made its Paralympic Games début at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, sending two wheelchair athletes to compete in track events.[1] The country was initially due to send two athletes to the 2008 Summer Games, but withdrew before the Games began.[2]

The Gambia has never taken part in the Winter Paralympic Games, and no Gambian athlete has ever won a Paralympic medal.[1]
