Summer Games

Lebanon made its Paralympic Games début at the 2000 Summer Paralympics in Sydney, sending just two male representatives to compete in sprinting (T44 category). Hussein Ghandour was a non-starter in his race, while Mahmoud Habbal failed to complete his. Lebanon was absent from the 2004 Games, but returned in 2008, with a single competitor: Edward Maalouf, in cycling. Maalouf entered two events, and won bronze in each of them.[1]

Lebanon has never taken part in the Winter Paralympics.[2]
