The Parapan American Games Lima 2019 Closing Ceremony was a celebration of the human spirit. Inspiration, determination, courage and equality were the values that defined the Paralympic Movement and the athletes. Through sport, Para athletes celebrated diversity and showed that difference is a strength. As pioneers of inclusion, they challenged stereotypes, transformed attitudes and broke down social barriers and discrimination towards persons with disabilities. As role models, Para athletes maximised their abilities, empowering and encouraging others to be active and participate in sport. Through their performances, Para athletes showcased to the world what can be achieved when pushing your body to the limit. The Ceremony celebrated also the volunteers with a mosaic made of the faces of hundreds of them: a fitting celebration of their invaluable contribution to the Lima 2019 Games.
