The Paralympics are finally here, and we cannot wait to get a glimpse of all of our School Games National Final alumni competing at Tokyo over the next few weeks!

The action is in full swing, and we have already seen medals fly in for Team GB, with one Gold, four Silver and one Bronze, which places us 6th in the leader board.   

This year there are nine School Games alumni competing in Wheelchair Basketball, and we cannot wait to watch them compete ahead of the 14th School Games National Finals.

Below are all the athletes competing in the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics that have appeared at the National Finals in the past. All of us at the School Games National Finals and Youth Sport Trust are behind you and the rest of Team GB every step of the way. Good luck!
