There are numerous events that an Athlete With a Disability (AWD) can compete in at the Para's.

One of the most exciting is the wheel chair racing. The distances involved in wheelchair racing include sprint distances of 100 m, 200m and 400m, middle distances of 800m and 1500m, long distances of 5000m and 10,000m and relay races of 4 x 100 m and 4 x 400 m. There is also a road event which is the wheelchair marathon.

I am involved in coaching AWD athletes in a number of areas however recently QA and AA has provided a number of racing chairs to enable athletes to try a racing chair to see if this is the sport for them.

If you are interested in wheel chair racing please contact Mr David Bartholomaeus of www.sportingwheelies.org.au or myself for details.
