Para Athletics is classified into five (5) main classes: Visual Impairment, Intellectual Impairment, Cerebral Palsy, Wheelchair and Amputee. These classifications are the basis for determining who can compete in specific athletic sports, and within which class. The classification is handled by International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and it was created during the 1940s and for much of its early history was a medical condition based on classification system. The objective for sports class is that each class should consists of athletes who have impairments that cause approximately the same amount of activity limitation in the key athletic disciplines – running, wheelchair racing, jumps and throws. The system ensures that athletes do not succeed simply because they have an impairment that causes less of a disadvantage than other competitors, but because of their skill, determination, tactics fitness and preparation.
