Para-olympic is short for paraplegic Olympics it is for disabled people like people in wheelchairs or with no legs Actually, as has already been stated, the "para" stands for "parallel" and not "paraplegic." While many of the participants are paraplegic (missing one or more arms or legs), others have different disabilities, such as blindness. "Paralympics" is the term used officially, by the International Paralympic Committee as well as the Paralympic Games themselves.
Paralympic is a combination of the words "paraplegic" (people with spinal injuries) and "Olympics". Another more formal explanation is "para" is Greek for beside or alongside and the Paralympics are held at the same time as the Olympics.....parallel/alongside.
