The Paralympic Games starts on 29 August and is shaping up to be the biggest ever.

Some of the athletes taking part have a condition called cerebral palsy which means that their brains have trouble communicating with their muscles.

It affects around one in every 400 children in the UK, including 10-year-old Archie, who's a big fan of wheelchair basketball.

Here's his story of how why he likes the sport and what it's like living with his condition.
