Changes in rules to include athletes with Down Syndrome in Tokyo´s Paralympics in 2020

We take the time of  Rio´s 2016 Paralympics to make, again, the games a changing event in people´s life. Several international committees have been struggling over the past few years to make the inclusion of athletes with Down syndrome as a class/category, with its own rules, within the Paralympic Games, but this request has not yet become a reality. Today the classification mark required to Paralympic athletes puts the athletes with Down syndrome at a disadvantage because they cannot achieve it by their physical limitations. We reiterate through this petition to International Paralympic committee the need to review rules and opening of new classes / categories so as the Paralympic games continue to be the world's largest stimulus event for driving social inclusion, able to make all societies in the world more equitable for all.

We appreciate your attention to our petition.

Cordially,

Lilian M Barros
