A selected Belgian team of four took part in the track cycling Paralympic World Championships in the American city of Carson, near Los Angeles, held from 2 to 5 March. The tandem duo Griet Hoet and her guide Anneleen Monsieur joined the men Diederick Schelfhout and Kris Bosmans in defending Belgium's honour at the oval in the large Velo Sports Center.
The Belgians performed extremely well on the track in Carson and were able to return home armed with two medals.
