In 1960, the first Paralympic Games was hosted in Rome, Italy after Rome 1960 Summer Olympics. The Paralympic Games have been taking place every four years ever since. Further to that, the delivery of the first Winter Paralympics in 1976 in Sweden served as the milestone for the development of Paralympic Movement.
