Wheelchair Curling first appeared at the Paralympic Games in Turin 2006. The first World Wheelchair Curling Championship was held in January 2002 and in March that year, the International Paralympic Committee granted official medal status to Wheelchair Curling for mixed gender teams. Wheelchair Curling is for athletes who have significant impairments in lower leg/gait function.
