Samsung has been a worldwide partner of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) since 2006. It was in Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games where Samsung performed as a worldwide partner of the Games for the first time ever.

Now, being proud to perform as a worldwide Paralympic partner for the fifth time, Samsung aims to make the Paralympic Games an event that reaches a wider audience around the world, spreading the inspiration and excitement of the Games through its innovative wireless communication technologies.

"I would like to thank Samsung for their incredible support in delivering the Paralympic movement. Samsung's technology and Paralympic campaigns have not only helped us successfully host the Games, but have also truly inspired the spectators to achieve their potential and engage with the Paralympic Games," said Sir Philip.
