Over 1,000 schools across the country take part in ‘mini Paralympic’ multi-sport competitions for secondary or primary school children, along with dedicated football, boccia and swimming programmes. This has been extended further this year with 16+ competitions for College students. Panathlon has in the last few years trained thousands of young leaders (3,931 in 2018) aged 14-19, who act as sports officials for Panathlon competitions. If you are new to Panathlon, please take a look at the video (at the bottom of the page) to get a flavour of what we are all about.

Find out what has been going on at the Panathlon Challenge.
Panathlon has helped Braidwood School for the Deaf overcome huge obstacles in providing quality PE and competitive sport
Heathlands School's PE Lead Sean Priestley tells us about the impact of Panathlon on deaf pupils at his school.
Panathlon won two awards in under 24 hours with accolades from London Sport and the Sport & Recreation Alliance.
It was great to do sports that relate to our kids. Also, this competition is all about learning about winning and losing. Too often activities we attend don’t have this.
Kieran Rutter, Great Arley School 13, “I feel proud to be here in this venue. It shows if you work really hard you can earn experiences and medals like this. Put your head down, don’t worry about anyone else, and just head for the gold!”
I knew we would win again. I just knew it. This is fantastic. I am very excited and happy. I just love the table cricket, which we won a gold in too.
I’m the only pupil on the Panathlon team from my school, so it’s a great opportunity to have fun and meet other people.
Panathlon is brilliant. I’ve been coming here since the age of nine and enjoy it every year. I take part in the wheelchair slalom and the relay races. I love racing against others.
It feels like heaven, this is what pure enjoyment feels like, It being Columbus’s first every victory just makes it that more sweet.
Watching Tom Daley before was just awesome. I love Panathlon because when I get frustrated or angry, it makes me feel free just to run or swim and forget everything else.
What a brilliant event, we are so pleased to have had this number of schools from across the county involved and starting them up so young into the Panathlon programme
Today was fun; I loved everything I did today. It was a great also meeting Paralympian gold medalist, Liz Johnson.
Panathlon gives disabled children something which they can achieve for themselves. They all want to do Panathlon.
