Inaugural NYC Paralympic Sports Track & Field Open
Hits : 2298
The Inaugural New York City Paralympic Sports Track and Field Open at Icahn Staduim will hopefully attract about 200 athletes with various physical disabilities from around New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut.
The meet would be broken down into divisions for athletes who use wheelchairs, blind athletes, athletes who are ambulatory and use a cane or other device, and dwarf athletes. There is a standard procedure for classifying athletes that we will use.
The following events will be offered:
50 meters for junior athletes
100 meters
200 meters
400 meters
800 meters for experienced athletes that can provide a seed time
long jump
triple jump for blind athletes
shot put
javelin--soft tip for junior and unexperienced athletes
Blind athletes will have to bring guide runners or we will provide one for them on meet day, but otherwise the other athletes race or throw unassisted.
Location : Ichan Stadium, Astoria NY
