The differences of sports training for the disabled and the normal are distinct. They exist not only in sports categories but also in training intensity and nutritional intervention for the disabled athletes. Therefore, to keep the competition fair and better show the creativity and value of the disabled athletes, in addition to setting reasonable standards for the sports competition, targeted schemes for training intensity and nutritional intervention are also necessary to promote athletes’ performances and enable them to have a equal competition with other athletes in the aspects of physical fitness, mental ability and live performances, etc. Therefore, this paper takes disabled athletes ‘performance ability as the research object and analyzes how to strengthen the performance of disabled athletes through sports training and nutritional intervention. Hopefully, this study will lay the foundation for the development of disabled athletes in the field of sports.
