Women in paralympic sport
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement, which organizises the Summer and Winter Paralympic Games. The IPC serves as the International Federation for nine sports, for which it supervises and co-ordinates events such as the World Championships and other competitions. It is committed to enabling paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and develop sport opportunities for everyone with a disability from the beginner to elite level. In addition, the IPC promotes the values of paralympics, which include courage, determination, inspiration and equality.
