Sweden at the 1976 Winter Paralympics

Sweden was the host country of the inaugural Winter Paralympic Games in 1976, in Örnsköldsvik. The country was represented by 16 athletes (9 men and 7 women). This was only the sixth largest delegation, despite Sweden being the host nation. Swedes competed exclusively in cross-country skiing; the host country was thus unrepresented in alpine skiing.[2][3]
