Rugby en silla de ruedas, para deporte de Lima 2019
Sport review

Wheelchair rugby, originally called “murderball”, was invented in Canada in 1977. It was included in the Paralympic program since the Sydney 2000 Games and in the Parapan American program since Toronto 2015.

Speed, strategy and control are used to score the highest amount of tries (to touch the goal line with two wheels holding the ball) while athletes move into the opponents’ field carrying, passing or dribbling the ball.
