Our team will confirm whether or not your impairment meets the criteria for classification as a Para-Athlete. The classification system ensures that no disabled athlete faces a competitive disadvantage. There are different types of classification: physical (S1-S10), visual (S11-S13) and intellectual (S14). Sometimes, swimmers who have a diagnosis that meets the eligibility criteria for classification may still not be sufficiently impaired to gain a classification.
Everyone who registers with Operation Tokyo 2020 will receive details of relevant swimming opportunities in their local area. Swimmers eligible for a classification will be invited to attend one of our Swimmer ID Days.
