Disciplines

Athletes with athetosis, ataxia or hypertonia

Description

There are 15 classes for athletes with athetosis, ataxia and/or hypertonia (7 track classes, 8 field classes, 3 jumping classes).

T/F 31-34
Athletes in these classes compete from a seated position (racing chairs on the track, throwing frames for field events). Events for athletes in these classes include 100m, 800m, shot put, javelin and club throw.

T/F 35-38
Athletes in these classes compete from a standing position (running on the track, ambulatory throws, jumps). Events for athletes in these classes include 100m, 200m, 400m, long jump, shot put, discus, and javelin.

Athletes with cerebral palsy, other congenital neurological disorders, or acquired injuries/conditions (ex: stroke, brain injury, multiple sclerosis etc. that present similar traits) typify the 30s class. There is a wide variance of function within the 30s classes and as such, each athlete will have different training needs. While some athletes will compete in racing chairs and train effectively with some athletes in the 50s classes, others are ambulatory and train effectively with other ambulatory para-athletes (ex: 40s classes, visually impaired athletes) or able-bodied teammates.
