Summer Paralympics appearances (overview)

Haiti competed at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London, United Kingdom from August 29 to September 9, 2012.[1]

Technically, it was Haiti's second participation in the Paralaympics. In 2008, however, the country's sole representative, powerlifter Nephtalie Jean Louis, was a non-starter in her event due to unspecified "problems with her weight". For the London Games, Haiti was represented by three athletes: wheelchair athlete Nephtalie Jean-Louis, this time in the women's javelin and the shot put; Josué Cajuste (who has "one leg much shorter than the other"), in the men's shot put and javelin; and Gaysli Leon, who "was paralysed in the 2010 earthquake", in road cycling in a handbike.[2][3][4][5][6]
