Women Athletes to Watch at the Beijing Winter Paralympics

The Beijing Winter Paralympics, which start on March 4 and conclude on March 13, will feature athletes competing across six sports: alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, snowboarding, para ice hockey, and wheelchair curling. Around 600 athletes are set to compete, although individuals from Russia and Belarus will be banned. This comes amid Russia's continued invasion of Ukraine with Belarus's support.

The Beijing Paralympics will showcase world-class women aiming for a medal, and we've rounded up a list of standout names you'll want to keep tabs on. We've included past medalists, such as now six-time Paralympian Oksana Masters; alpine skier Natalie Wilkie, who was the youngest person on Team Canada at the 2018 Winter Paralympics; and snowboarder Lisa Bunschoten, who won two medals in Pyeongchang.

Of course, there are more women athletes besides the ones featured here, and you never know what will happen in competition. Keep track of the Beijing Paralympics schedule on and see your streaming options from channels like USA Network, NBC, and the Olympic Channel here.
