I believe it started in 1976 at Ornskoldsvik the germane won

with 23 medals 7 gold 10 silver and 6 bronze. America was not in

those games the first time the were in the Paralympic games was in

1980 they won 6 medals they had 4 gold 1 silver 1 bronze they were

tied in 6th with Canada. And the closest America got to 1st is

actually 1st in 2002 Salt Lake City they got 41 they got 10 gold 20

silver 11 bronze.
