Morocco at the Paralympics
Morocco made its Paralympic Games début at the 1988 Summer Paralympics in Seoul. It was represented by an all-male team, with five competitors in athletics, three in swimming, and a wheelchair basketball team. Abdeljalal Biare won a bronze medal in the 400m freestyle (category 4) in swimming - Morocco's sole medal of the 1988 Games.

Morocco has participated in every edition of the Summer Paralympics since then, albeit never in the Winter Paralympics. Moroccans have won a total of six gold medals (all in 2004 or 2008), five silver and three bronze.

In 2008, Sanaa Benhama was Morocco's first female Paralympic champion, and the country's most successful Paralympian to date, when she won three gold medals in the 100m, 200m and 400m sprints, in the T13 category for partially sighted athletes. Abdelillah Mame won the country's other gold medal of the Games, in the men's 800m (T13).
