British Paralympic Association

The British Paralympic Association, or the BPA is the National Paralympic Committee (NPC) for Great Britain. It is their responsibility to select, prepare, enter, fund and manage the Great Britain and Northern Ireland team at the Paralympic Games. This team is known as ParalympicsGB.

To top the success at London 2012 in Rio was always going to be a challenge. The quality of the sport on the field of play, the range and depth of nations and athletes competing and the way those performances engaged a global audience in a way we had never seen before.

But for the Paralympic movement to grow, and for the impact of the Paralympics to reach more people, it needed to and the BPA had every confidence that Rio 2016 would take us on the next step of that journey. And indeed it did – cariocas across the city embraced Paralympic sport and provided a noisy audience for teams to compete in front of.

Rio 2016 was ParalympicsGB’s most successful Games ever, winning an outstanding total of 147 medals and securing second place on the medal table.
