Respect!

Paralympische Spelen zijn de Olympische Spelen voor mensen met onder meer een lichamelijke handicap, visuele beperking en/of hersenverlamming. De Paralympische Spelen worden altijd in hetzelfde jaar gehouden als de Olympische Spelen, doorgaans in de maand na de Olympische Spelen en sinds de Zomerspelen van 1988 worden ze ook altijd in dezelfde stad gehouden. De XVe Paralympische Zomerspelen van 2016 vonden plaats in Rio de Janeiro van 7 tot en met 18 september 2016 en zijn dus nog maar recent afgelopen.
