The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) code for classification is split in to 10 categories for an athlete to be classified to play their sport at the Paralympics. Because there are only 10 categories, there are many disabilities that slip through these gaps. Although being acknowledged to have a disability and be disabled, these athletes are deemed ineligible to play their chosen sport in accordance with these restricted parameters. How can athletes be excluded from the only sports that they are physically able to play, This petition is to urge the IPC to review and amend the classification system.
