In total, 33 athletes competing in eight sports, took part in the games, coming away with only two bronze medals: one in the F40 weight throw, won by Miguel Monteiro, and another in the 200 meters VL2, achieved by the canoeist Norberto Mourão.

The two bronzes achieved in Tokyo, in a competition which took place without members of the public, increased to 94 the number of Portuguese medals in Paralympic competitions.

Athletics is where the most medals have been won traditionally with a total of 54 followed by boccia, which totals 26, and which in this edition, for the first time since Portugal debuted in the sport, in 1984, the athletes have left without any medals.

Swimming is the third most awarded Portuguese sport, with nine medals, followed by cycling, with two, football, table tennis and canoeing, all with one medal each.

The Sydney2000 Games, in which Portugal had the largest delegation ever, with 52 athletes, were the ones that earned the most medals, with 15 places on the podium.

In recent editions, the number of medals won has been decreasing, with seven won in Beijing2008, three in London2012, four in Rio2016 and two in the Tokyo2020 Games.
