Let’s all get behind the French Paralympic Team! [fr]
The French Team has taken part in every Paralympic Games since their creation in 1960.
This 15th edition is no exception, with a 230-strong French Delegation, including 126 athletes (42 women and 84 men) taking part in the Paralympic Games opening ceremony at the Maracana Stadium in Rio.
Until 18 September, the Team will fly the flag for France in 17 of 23 disciplines, led by quadruple medallist Michaël Jérémiasz, the charismatic wheelchair tennis player designated as flag bearer.
