All Angolan Paralympians have competed in track and field.[1]

Angola's first Paralympic medals came in 2004, when Jose Armando Sayovo took three gold medals in the men's 100m, 200m and 400m sprints in the T11 disability category.[1] Armando competed again at the 2008 Summer Paralympics, and won his country's only medals of the Games - three silvers.[2]

Angola will be taking part in the 2012 Summer Paralympics, and the Comite Paralimpico Angolano have chosen Bedford as the UK base for its Paralympians.[3]
