Rio 2016: Paralympian Natalie Partyka earns Olympic spot
Polish table tennis player Natalia Partyka has become the latest Paralympic athlete to secure a place at the Rio Olympics.
The 26-year-old three-time Paralympic gold medallist, who was born without her right hand and part of her forearm, also competed at both Games in 2008 and 2012.
"I hope this shows all disabled athletes that nothing is impossible," said Partyka, the world number 73, who will take part in the Olympic team event.
Tapper, 26, who has Erb's Palsy after her shoulder nerves were damaged during birth, will play in both the singles and team events at the Olympics, which take place from 5-21 August.
She competed for Australia at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, winning team bronze, and will be the first Australian to take part in both Games.
"I think that it's awesome that the Paralympic athletes are breaking down barriers and getting to participate in the Olympics," she said.
The Rio Paralympics run from 7-18 September.
