The Rio 2016 Track schedule (UPDATED)

It’s less than five days to the opening ceremony of the 2016 Paralympic Games in Rio. All the sports disciplines are going to be spectacular but like their Olympic counterpart, athletics, particularly the track events, are hugely popular at the Paralympics.

Classification
Track Schedule
Like all the para-sports, track athletes in most cases race according to their classification. Here are the classifications for track events as extracted from the IPC website:

T11-13:  Athletes with a visual impairment are classified into three classes, according to their degree of vision loss. The lower the number the higher the level of vision loss,  T11 is for athletes with no sight, and T13 is for athletes who have visual acuity less than or equal to 6/60 or visual field less than 20 degrees radius in both eyes with best corrected vision.

T20:  Athletes with an intellectual disability.

T31-38:  Athletes with a physical disability, such as cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury or similar disability who are ambulant or use a wheelchair.  Athletes who use a wheelchair to compete are in classes 31–34 and athletes who compete standing are in classes 35 – 38.

T40-47:  Athletes with a physical disability who are ambulant and have different levels of limb deficiency or limb loss, congenital limb impairments or short stature.

T51-54: Athletes with a physical disability who compete using wheelchairs. In these classes, athletes have different levels of spinal cord injuries, spinal damage or amputations.

Athletes competing in wheelchair racing events for T51-54 sport classes differ with regard to their arm and shoulder functions which are pertinent for pushing a wheelchair. Athletes in class T53 have full function in the arms, but similar to classes T51 and 52, do not have trunk function. Athletes in classes T51-52 have activity limitations in both lower and upper limbs. Unlike athletes in the sport classes T51-53, athletes competing in T54 have partial to complete trunk function and may demonstrate some leg function.

Madison de Rozario is a T53 athlete.

Madison de Rozario’s Track schedule (UPDATED)

Madison will be competing in the T53 800m, T54 1500m and T54 5000m events. There are no events 1500 metres or longer specific to T53 athletes; instead the T53s will compete with the T54s. If the T53/T54 4x100m 4x400m relay is confirmed for the women, Madison will be part of the Australian team.
