Spain competed at the 2000 Summer Paralympics in Sydney, Australia. The team included 210 athletes—158 men and 52 women.[1] Spanish competitors won 106 medals, 38 gold, 30 silver and 38 bronze, to finish 4th in the medal table.[2]

Spain was stripped of their intellectual disability basketball gold medals shortly after the Games closed after Carlos Ribagorda, a member of the victorious team and an undercover journalist, revealed to the Spanish business magazine Capital that most of his colleagues had not undergone medical tests to ensure that they had a disability.
