The Paralympic Games are scheduled to take place from August 24th to September 5th 2021. After the massive success of the Indian contingent at the Tokyo Olympics, the entire nation awaits the para-athletes showdown at the Summer Games.

The largest contingent of 54 athletes will represent India at the 2021 Paralympics. With most of the para-athletes being in good form, there's scope for an increase in podium finishes at this year's Tokyo Summer Games.

With the addition of 35 more athletes, Team India will look to better their 2016 Rio Paralympics performance at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. India bagged two gold, one silver and one bronze at the Rio Paralympic Games.

India will participate across nine different disciplines - archery, athletics, badminton, shooting, table tennis, canoeing, swimming, powerlifting and taekwondo at the Tokyo Paralympic Games. Out of these nine, badminton and taekwondo will make their debuts at the mega event.

2016 Rio gold medalist Mariyappan Thangavelu will be the Indian flag bearer at the Paralympic Games.
