Summer Paralympics appearances

Haiti sent a delegation to compete at the 2008 Summer Paralympics in Beijing, China. It was Haiti's first participation in the Paralympic Games. The country was represented by a single athlete, Nephtalie Jean-Louis, who competed in powerlifting.[1] Jean-Louis was her country's flagbearer at the Games' Opening Ceremony.[2]

Due to unspecified "problems with her weight", Jean-Louis was ultimately unable to compete, and was thus listed as a non-starter in her event.[3]
