Wheelchair Slalom was an event at the Summer Paralympics, held from Tokyo 1964 to Seoul 1988. The sport was part of the athletics program.
The wheelchair slalom event involves athletes in a wheelchair navigating an obstacle course through cones and up and down ramps, as quickly and cleanly as possible. The aim was to be the quickest through the course, with one-second penalties added to the total time for each fouling on a marker.
In 1980 (and maybe other years too), slalom events were held along the race track in a more exciting head-to-head format.
