Malaysian Paralympiad (Malay: Paralimpiad Malaysia), is a Malaysian biannual national multi-sport event held after every Sukma Games involving disabled athletes from Malaysian 13 member states and federal territory. Participants have a variety of disabilities, ranging from spastic, cerebral palsy, mobility disabilities, visual disabilities, amputated to intellectual disabilities. The Malaysian Paralympiad is regulated by the Malaysia Paralympic Council, State Sports council of respective member states, Ministry of Youth and Sports, national sports association of the sports competed at the games and National Sports Council of Malaysia and is traditionally hosted by the state where the Sukma Games took place.[1][2][3][4][5]


The games' history began as early as 1982 when the games were known as the National Games of Malaysia For the Disabled (Malay: Sukan Kebangsaan Bagi Orang Cacat Anggota Malaysia) and involved only 2 sports which are Athletics and Swimming.[6][7] In 1998, the games changed its name to its present name, the Malaysian Paralympiad (Malay: Paralimpiad Malaysia) when the games was held in Selangor.[8][9] Throughout the history of the games, ASEAN Countries were invited to participate at the 1990, 1992, 1994, 1996 and the 2000 games, while the Asian Countries were invited to participate at the 2002 games.[10][11]

In 2008, the Ministry of Youth and Sports had decided to host the games at the same venue as the Sukma Games begins 2010 onwards to change the Malaysian community's perception in general about the ability of disabled in sports and also in accordance with the practice of hosting disabled games after every able-bodied games at the same venue as the able-bodied games as in International tournaments such as the Paralympic Games and the ASEAN Para Games which were held after the Olympic Games and the Southeast Asian Games respectively.[12][13][14] In 2018, the Ministry of Youth and Sports had decided to rebrand Malaysian Paralympiad as the Sukma Para Games.[15]
