The Paralympic slogan “Spirit in Motion” stands for the top performances of Paralympic athletes which can only be achieved through will power, motivation and complete concentration on the most important event in the handicapped sport, the Paralympics.
Overcoming your own personal limits is the motivation for every top athlete with or without disabilities in training, competition and everyday life. The Austrian Paralympic Committee overcomes limits by working on the equality of disabled sports with non-disabled sports. Access to professional sport must be the same for top athletes with or without disabilities.
Participation in the Paralympics is a challenge for every top athlete. The challenge for the ÖPC is to finance and organise the delegations’ participation.
The biggest success and highlight of the athletic career of all athletes is a medal at Paralympics under the motto “Winning knows no handicap”. These successes are in line with the successes of the Austrian Paralympic Committee, because together they increase the acceptance of disabled sports in society.
