Summer appearances

Malaysia made its Paralympic Games début at the 1972 Summer Paralympics in Heidelberg, with a delegation of three athletes, all of whom competed in both track and field and weightlifting. The country was then absent for three consecutive editions of the Summer Paralympics, before making its return at the 1988 Games in Seoul. Malaysia has participated in every subsequent edition of the Summer Paralympics, but has never entered the Winter Paralympics.[1]

Malaysians have won a total of ten medals at the Paralympic Games: three gold, two silver and five bronze. Four of these medals have been obtained in weightlifting or its successor sport, powerlifting. Powerlifter Siow Lee Chan, in 2008, was both Malaysia's first female Paralympic medallist, and the first Malaysian in sixteen years to have won a Paralympic medal;[2] in 2016, Malaysia won its first ever gold medal in athletics.[3]
