It’s been an oustanding 9 days of sport where the team have created countless pieces of history. See the Games round up and all the news from the final day below.
We were back in Bird’s Nest Stadium today to bring down the curtain on the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Games and what has been a remarkable nine days of winter sport. ParalympicsGB were led in to the stadium by none other than the gold medal winning Simpson brothers. Beijing 2022 saw an array of outstanding performances from our extraordinary athletes.
The medal tally of six medals comprised of 1 gold, 1 silver and 4 bronzes. But the medal success tells only half the story. So many times our athletes wrote themselves into the history books, to name a few; Neil and Andrew Simpson became the first British men to ever win a gold medal on snow, Menna Fitzpatrick became Britain’s most decorated Winter Paralympian, Ollie Hill secured ParalympicsGB’s first ever Para snowboard medal, Hope Gordon became ParalympicsGB’s first ever female Para Nordic skier and there were an astonishing 13 top five finishes which is the most ever by a ParalympicsGB team at a Winter Games.
It truly has been a history-making Games and we know that our incredible athletes can continue to inspire a better world for all disabled people.Thank you Beijing, let the countdown to Milan-Cortina 2026 begin! In the morning of the final day, our male Para Alpine and Para Nordic skiers rounded off their Games with their final events on the mountains.
