At the Paralympics
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) first recognized Wheelchair Rugby as a sport in 1994. In 1996 Wheelchair Rugby was included as a demonstration sport at the Atlanta Paralympic Games. In 1998, Toronto, Canada hosted the second IWRF Wheelchair Rugby World Championship, and 12 countries attended. Wheelchair Rugby was finally recognized as a full medal sport for the first time at the 2000 Paralympic Games in Sydney, Australia. It has since been featured at the Paralympic Games in Athens in 2004, Beijing in 2008, and London in 2012. It will be held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.
