The current classification system discriminates against B4 classified athletes. They are being excluded from International sporting opportunities because the classification system deems them “not disabled” enough, yet by almost every other standard across the globe, these athletes are considered disabled. Due to their visual disability, these athletes are unable to participate in mainstream sport

I have a son with Nystagmus who is 9. We attended a Paralympic even a few years ago at Durham and we're told Jack's vision was too good to compete. Similarly Jack attended a disabled swim group and was told the same thing.

I firmly believe many athletes are being discriminated against by an out dated and unfair system
