Kyrgyzstan made its Paralympic Games début at the 1996 Summer Paralympics in Atlanta, and has competed in every edition of the Summer Paralympics since then - albeit with delegations consisting in no more than three athletes. Kyrgyzstan made its début at the Winter Paralympics in 2014 in Sochi.[1]

Kyrgyz athletes have only ever competed in powerlifting. All have been men, and none has ever won a Paralympic medal, the closest any has come to doing so was Roman Omurbekov's sixth place in the Up To 52 kg event at the 2004 Games, with a lift of 135kg.[2]
