Participating delegations[edit]

Does someone know which are the 23 nations that took part in these Paralympic Games?

I don't know. But the IPC says quite clearly that only 17 countries actually sent athletes to compete. (Presumably, the other 6 countries, whichever they were, sent only officials, such as judges.) It also says there were 138 athletes competing. I've edited the article accordingly. Aridd (talk) 15:08, 5 April 2010 (UTC)
I deleted the 17 and 138 sentence. At first I believed it was 138 medal winners listed at the source [1], but now I believe it means 138 participating athletes if one does not count the team members and such, since it says such information might be missing. And it wouldn't add up if there were 291 medals for 138 participating athletes. Another site at paralympics.org says there were 400 [2]. (That would mean that there are 262 athletes missing from the paralympics database though.) Bib (talk) 19:34, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
And how Sweden fits in the story and the statement that per event there were only 3 participants? Miho (talk) 17:41, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
