What is classification?
Classification is a term used frequently when referring to Paralympic Sport. Classification in Paralympic sport exists to support as fair competition as possible, amongst athletes with different impairments. It forms the structure for all Paralympic competition, by grouping athletes with similar levels of functional ability into classes for equivalent competition. The outcomes of Paralympic competition then become based on athletic performance rather than on differences that exist in athletes disabilities.
