The event in the southwestern Czarna Góra Resort and the Tauron Duszniki Arena runs until March 1.
Polish biathlete Weronika Nowakowska has been appointed “ambassador” of the competition.
She said: “Sport and competition by people with disabilities is for me proof that it’s worth having dreams in life and pursuing them. This is a great lesson in humility, perseverance and inner strength.”
Nowakowska won the silver in the sprint at the Biathlon World Championships in Kontiolahti, Finland, in 2015, and bronze in the pursuit.
