Your Comprehensive List of Paralympic Female Champions

This past Sunday marked the end of an incredible 11 days of the Rio Paralympic Games. Chances are unless you went actively searching to watch any of them, it was pretty difficult. According to Mic.com, “During the 2016 Olympics Games, NBCUniversal dedicated 6,755 hours to televising sports events and related coverage. For the Paralympic Games? Sixty-six hours.” They went on to share that it was an improvement over the 50 hours of 2014 Sochi Winter Games and a measly 5.5 for the London Summer Games. 
 
Despite the severe lack of coverage – no matter the improvement over years past – there were some truly incredible performances. Read further along in the Mic.com article to read a few. You can also read these great articles: The Wall Street Journal, Team USA , The Guardian.
 
Team USA as a whole ended up fourth in the overall medal count with 115 total medals, including 40 gold. The American women collected more than half of the 115 total medals, including 25 Gold.
 
We compiled a complete and comprehensive list of every female gold medalist from the Rio Games. Below is a list of all of the American gold medalists.
