Eight years of operation for the Paralympic Committee of Portugal!

The Paralympic Committee of Portugal (CPP) celebrated its eighth anniversary with its stakeholders at the Dom Pedro Palace Hotel in Lisbon, Portugal. The event was attended by hundreds of guests, which included athletes, CPP’s members, sponsors, partners and friends of the Paralympic Movement. They gathered and blew out the candles on a cake to celebrate more years of sporting success.

It was also an acknowledgment and gratitude to all those who have supported the CPP in its activities. The anniversary recognised the increase in the number of members, from 10 in 2008 to 36 in 2016, all working to promote sport for people with impairment in Portugal. At the Rio 2016 Paralympics, Portugal brought home four medals, one more than their haul from London 2012.
