Credit: Adam Pretty/Getty Images In 1948, Sir Ludwig Guttmann organised a sports competition involving World War II veterans with a spinal cord-related injury in Stoke Mandeville, England. Four years later, competitors from Holland joined the Games, and the international movement, now known as the Paralympics, was born. Olympic-style games for athletes with a disability were organised for the first time in Rome in 1960. In Toronto in 1976, other disability groups were added and the idea of merging together different disability groups for international sports competitions was born. In the same year, the first Paralympic Winter Games took place in Sweden. PARALYMPIC GAMES Credit: Matt Turner/Allsport The Paralympic Games have always been held in the same year as the Olympic Games. Since the 1988 Seoul Summer Games and the 1992 Albertville Winter Games, they have also taken place at the same venues as the Olympic Games. On 19 June 2001, an agreement was signed between the International Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee aiming to secure the organisation of the Paralympic Games. The agreement reaffirmed that the Paralympic Games, from 2008 on, will always take place shortly after the Olympic Games, using the same sporting venues and facilities. Since the Salt Lake 2002 Games, one organising committee is responsible for hosting both the Olympic and the Paralympic Games. Athletes from both Games live in the same Village and enjoy the same catering services, medical care and facilities. Ticketing, technology and transport systems for the Olympic Games are seamlessly extended to the Paralympics.

25 things you never knew about the Paralympics
. The Paralympic Games originated at Stoke Mandeville hospital, in Aylesbury, England, conceived by Dr. Ludwig Guttmann , who originally planned them as part of a rehabilitation programme for people with spinal injuries and to help young disabled war veterans find activity and gain self-esteem. The 'Games for the Paralysed' were first held in 1948 to coincide with the London Olympics. . The first official Paralympics took place in Rome in 1960. 400 athletes and staff attended from 23 countries, but only in wheelchair sports. . Blind and visually impaired sports were demonstrated for the first time in the 1972 Heidelberg Games, and became official sports four years later in Toronto along with amputee events. . The first games to include athletes with Cerebral Palsy came in 1984. They were shared between New York and Stoke Mandeville, England. . Since the 1988 Seoul Games, the Paralympics have constantly been held in the same venues as the Olympics. In 2001, a decision was made to officialy have the Olympics and Paralympics in the same venues. Cities now have to bid for the Olympics and Paralympics as a single package.

Tom Kimmell Photography / USOC Article Tools Print Email Reprints Sphere addthis_url = location.href; addthis_title = document.title; addthis_pub = 'timecom'; RSS For Scott Winkler, nothing could have been more important than completing a lifetime of service for his country. An Army service technician who entered the military a few years after high school, Winkler, 34, took a two-year hiatus in the late '90s, only to realize he belonged in the military. But in 2003, Winkler fell off an ammo truck in Tikrit, injuring his spinal cord.
    Related Articles'sphereSideBar','') tiiQuigoWriteAd(755777, 1290692, 180, 200, -1); Winkler was one of 29 participants to attend the fifth Paralympic Military Sports Camp, held at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs from May 3-8. The camp, launched by disabled Gulf War veteran John Register in 2005, is designed to help veterans like Winkler develop and hone new athletic skills through a series of intensive clinics. "We have 24 sports on the menu that can be offered," Register says. "On the battlefield, you strive for excellence, and there are a few here that continue to do that." U.S. Paralympics national team coaches and athletes train the veterans for events like archery, sailing and volleyball, and organize competitions for participants at the end of the program, which is funded by the United States Olympic Committee.
