Did you know that the Paralympics exclude people with a learning disability from over three quarters of sports? Out of 23 sports at the Summer Paralympic games, athletes with a learning disability can only compete in 3; athletics, swimming and table tennis. There are 264 athletes going to Rio 2016 as part of Paralympics Team GB. Only 7 of them have a learning disability. That’s 3%. Mencap is calling on the International Paralympic Committee to bring about greater equality and give athletes with a learning disability the support and opportunities they deserve.
