Wow. What an incredible night all for a great cause. Big thanks to the @australianopen for letting me share the court with so many sporting champions, and big love to the man himself Novak Djokovic for being such an incredibly good sport throughout the whole night, needs to work on his leg spin and wheelchair tennis though! #novak #djokovic #novakdjokovic #nightwithnovak

Wishing #One2Watch Pepo Puch a Happy Birthday! He rode his way to a gold medal at the Rio #Paralympics! He is a #One2Watch for a reason! #Rio2016 #Paraequestrian @fei_global @austrian_paralympic_committee

History is being made this week. Site inspection for first World Para Alpine Skiing event in Darbandsar, #Iran #paraalpine #paraalpineskiing #makinghistory #makinghistorytoday

The Rio 2016 Paralympics were the People's Games and are the No 1 of the #ipctop50 moments of 2016.

Great to see the Independent Paralympic Athletes feature in the @unitednations. The two athletes, who faced the additional challenge of being displaced from their homeland, led the way at the #rio2016 #paralympics Opening Ceremony, raising awareness for the plight of refugees. #repost @unitednations

83 countries won medals at the Rio 2016 Paralympics - more than ever before at a Paralympic Games and the No 2 of the #ipctop50 moments of 2016.

The year is coming to and end and so is the #ipctop50 moments countdown. No 3 is the IPC making a stand for clean sport. #no2doping #paralympics #rio2016 @wada_ama

Who remembers the armless table tennis player or the #kellydive from #rio2016? These images went viral during the Paralympics and made it to No 4 of the #IPCTop50 moments of the year. Only 3 days left in 2016 and we are excited to share the best moments with you!

ICYMI here's No 5 of the #ipctop50 moments countdown: The world's strongest Paralympian Siamand Rahman with his incredible lift of 310kg at the #rio2016 #paralympics. 💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 @parapowerlifting

The first Independent Paralympic Athletes' team captured the hearts of the world at Rio 2016 and that's why they are No 6 in the #IPCTop50 Moments of 2016.

At No. 7 in the #IPCTop50 Moments of 2016 we celebrate the Paralympians who won the most medals at Rio 2016. Find out who they were.

The historic race in the men's 1,500m T13 at Rio2016 enters at No.8 in the #IPCTop50 moments. The top four finished faster than the Olympic men!

#IPCTop50 No.9: Daniel Dias and the support of the home crowds on his way to four golds and several other podium finishes! Memories that will last a lifetime #rio2016

We're down to the top 10 of the #IPCTop50! Marking No 10 is the record digital numbers from the Rio 2016 Paralympics!

It was a historic scene when Zahra Nemati carried the Iranian flag during the Olympics Opening Ceremony. That is No 11 in our #IPCTop50 moments!

So many great moments from the Rio 2016 Opening Ceremony! They mark No. 12 in the #IPCTop50

"We're the Superhumans" advert by Channel 4 in the run up to the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games makes it to No 13 in the #IPCTop50!! The award winning advert features 140 people with an impairment. So cool and inspiring! #Paralympics #Rio2016 #YesICan

We can no longer call him the Swiss Silver Bullet after Marcel Hug finally got his golden moment in Rio 🏅#ipctop50 #paraathletics #gold #rio2016

Why do Paralympians make a good addition to the workforce? Here are just a few reasons!

Remember when teenager @bebe_vio won her first #Paralympic gold in Rio? #IPCTop50

So that's what they call 'mental preparation'. 🎿 Do you recognise the skier on the photo? #repost @paraalpine #instatakeover @paralympische_mannschaft

Wondering what No 16 of the 50 best moments of the year is? Cuban queen of speed running to three gold medals at the #Rio2016 Paralympics setting two world records. Very impressive performance by the world's fastest female Paralympian. #athletics #paraathletics #sprint #rio2016 #cuba #omaradurand #proudparalympian #IPCTop50 @paraathletics

And here's No 17 of the #IPCTop50 moments: @franceparalympique Marie Bochet did the sweep in the last @paraalpine World Cup season. What an achievement! #paraalpine #roadtopyeongchang #alpineskiing

#repost @paraalpine make sure your follow the #paraalpine #instagram account these days! @dpskiteam Anna-Lena Forster will share some insights from the first World Cup of the season in Kühtai!

ICYMI Here's No 18 of the #IPCTop50 moments countdown: some long-standing @paraswimming world records tumbled at the #rio2016 #paralympics. #paraswimming #swimming @bradsnyderusa

#rio2016 had some amazing #sittingvolleyball moments. The @usparalympics women's team won their first gold, the Iranian men's team their 5th and Rwanda made history as the first African women's team to compete at a #paralympics. That's No 19 of the #IPCTop50 moments of the year. @usavolleyball @worldparavolley #iran #gold #volleyball #rwanda

The #Agitos Foundation contributed to the #Rio2016 legacy. They organised workshops for 300 coaches, athletes and officials in Latin America and some athletes took part in the #Paralympics in the end! #legacy #parasport #teamagitos #IPCTop50
