Summer Games

Syria made its Paralympic Games début at the 1996 Summer Paralympics in Atlanta, with two representatives: Ahmad Manfi in table tennis, and Ali Ismail in swimming. The country has participated in every subsequent edition of the Summer Paralympics, but has never entered the Winter Paralympics.[1]

Syria won its first and so far only Paralympic medal when Rasha Alshikh took bronze in powerlifting, in the women's up to 67.5 kg category, in 2004, lifting 117.5 kg.[2]
