In 1948 Dr. Guttmann organized the first competition for athletes in wheelchairs called Stoke Mandeville Games. The First Paralympic Games were held in 1960 in Rome, from 1988, the Paralympic Games are held in the same city as the Olympics. Some tests have been incorporated in the Olympics, but merging the two competitions is not in the agenda.
