Uzbekistan made its Paralympic Games début at the 2004 Summer Paralympics in Athens, with a single representative (Yusup Kadyrov) in powerlifting. Competing in the men's up to 75 kg category, Kadyrov failed to lift a weight. In 2008, Uzbekistan sent two competitors: a powerlifter and a swimmer.[1]

Uzbekistan will be taking part in its first Winter Paralympics when it competes in the Sochi Winter Paralympics in 2014.

It won its first Paralympic medal, a silver, at the 2012 Summer Paralympics in London.
