Evaluations will be conducted by trained, certified classifiers, who go through years of challenging training and certification. Classification determines an athlete’s eligibility to compete in the events and also places those eligible athletes into sport classes according to the activity limitation in a certain sport. Although not a perfect science, classification provides a mechanism that addresses the vast and varied aspects of impairment in order to provide fair competition.
