The seventh edition of the IWAS World Games took place in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates, for the second time from 10-16 February 2019.

More than 500 athletes from 50 countries made the journey to the third largest Emirate. They competed in seven sports across three venues – the Al Tiqah Club for the Disabled, the American University Sharjah and the Al Dhaid Sports Club.

The competition was an important stop on the road to the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games, and was a strong proving ground for emerging athletes. A number of sports offered qualification for the 2020 Paralympics.

Sharjah 2019 was also one of the most successful IWAS World Games on social media. A team of videographers, photographers, editors, digital media experts and writers covered all sports across platforms throughout the competition.
