Wheelchair basketball was born in England in 1940. South America joined the movement in the 1950s after a polio epidemic swept through the region leaving many disabled. The sport is now played in more than 75 countries.

Physical disabilities aside, the players use the same ball as in Olympic basketball and the hoop is at the same height.
