Table tennis highlights - Rio 2016 Paralympic Games
 
04:10
As the favourites fell left and right in a table tennis tournament full of upsets, Natalia Partyka of Poland just kept on getting the job done. One of the biggest stars in the sport clinched a record fourth consecutive class 10 women's singles gold medal. She then led Poland to victory over China in the classes 6-10 team competition to avenge finals lost to the Chinese at Beijing 2008 and Athens 2004. Having made her Paralympic debut at the Sydney 2000 Games aged 11, Partyka is still only 27 years old and could keep her golden run going well into the future. Sandra Paovic finds love and glory in second chapter of table tennis career She said early exits of highly fancied players in other classes, such as Ma Lin of China and Viktor Didukh of Ukraine, served as a healthy reminder to avoid complacency. "It's the beauty of table tennis. Even if you seem to be the best in your group - and many favourites lost in semis, quarters, even the group stage - in table tennis you never know. You have to be always ready for everything," she said. Paralympic table tennis competition to serve up tantalising matches at Rio 2016 Partyka led a strong Polish contingent which secured second place in the medal table, with eight. That still left them well behind China with its 21 podium finishes, including 13 golds. Strong performances in the male competitions ensured Great Britain and France rounded out the top four, while Brazil exceeded expectations with a silver and a hat-trick of bronze medals. Will Bayley of Great Britain reigns supreme in table tennis The biggest attraction at the tournament, however, was not the undefeated Partyka, but an Egyptian who did not win a single match: cult figure Ibrahim Hamadtou, who plays by gripping the racket in his mouth to compensate for his lack of arms.

Paralympic Sport A-Z: Goalball
 
02:08
Goalball is played exclusively by athletes who are blind or visually impaired. It was invented in 1946 to help rehabilitate veterans who had lost their sight during the Second World War. Hans Lorenzen of Austria and Sepp Reindle of Germany are credited with inventing the game. Players must wear opaque eyeshades at all times ensuring fair competition. All international athletes must be legally blind, meaning they have less than 10 per cent vision, and are classified as a B3, a B2, or a B1 – totally blind. Teams are made up of six players, with three members playing at any one time. The three positions are centre, right wing, and left wing. The object of the game is to throw a ball using a bowling motion past the opponents and into their net to score points. This can be achieved by bouncing, curving, and spinning the shots around the opponents. Players stay on their hands and knees to defend their net and score against their opponents. A goalball court is the same size as a volleyball court, measuring 18 metres long and nine metres wide. It has goals at each end covering the entire nine-metre back-line. String is taped to the markings on the court to allow players to feel the lines and orientate themselves. The ball weighs 1.25 kilograms, is approximately 76 centimetres along its circumference and contains bells to allow players to hear it and track its movements. Only players and referees may talk or make noise during play. Coaches, teammates on the bench and spectators must remain silent so players can hear and locate the ball. Officials use verbal commands to inform players of what is happening during the game. Goalball requires two referees during each game. Four goal-judges remain at the corners of the court to verify if the ball touches crosses the line into goals. They also retrieve the ball when it goes out of bounds. When a member of the defensive team touches the ball, they have 10 seconds to throw it back without being penalised. Penalties normally result in a penalty shot, during which the penalised player has to defend the entire nine-metre net alone. Along with the 10-second violation, penalties are also awarded for high ball, long ball, excessive noise, delaying the game and touching one’s eyeshades. A “high ball” occurs when a team throws the ball and it fails to land before or on the first high ball line. There are two high-ball lines which are six metres from each goal line, dividing the court into thirds. The ball must land before or on the first high-ball line, and then again on or before the second high-ball line. If it does not touch the ground again on or before the second high-ball line, it is considered a “long ball.” Goalball was a demonstration sport at the Heidelberg 1972 Paralympic Games. In 1976, it made its official Paralympic debut when eight international men’s goalball teams competed for medals at the Paralympics in Toronto, Canada. The sport has been part of every Paralympic Games since. Women’s goalball made its Paralympic debut at the 1984 Paralympic Games in New York. The first World Championships for goalball were held in Vocklamarck, Austria, in 1978. The International Blind Sport Federation (IBSA) governs goalball and holds World Championships every four years, in between the Paralympic Games.

Find out all you need to know about the Paralympic sport of football 5-a-side, including the history, rules, classification and equipment. For more info go to: http://www.paralympic.org/football-5-side Football 5-a-side, also known as blind football, is an adaptation of football for athletes with a visual impairment. The sport has been governed by the International Blind Sports Federation (IBSA) since 1996 and it is played with modified FIFA rules. It featured at the Paralympics for the first time at Athens 2004, and has been contested at every Games since. Brazil are the only team to win Paralympic gold and are hunting their fourth successive title at Rio 2016. World Championships take place every four years in between the Paralympics. Football 5-a-side teams are made up of four outfield players and one goalkeeper. Outfield players must be classified as completely blind (B1 category), which means they have very low visual acuity and/or no light perception, whilst the goalkeeper must be sighted or partially sighted (B2 or B3 category). To ensure fair competition, all outfield players must wear eyeshades. Teams can also have off-field guides to assist them. The ball makes a noise due to a sound system located inside that helps players orientate themselves. As a result spectators must remain silent whilst watching the game until a goal is scored. Blind football is played on a rectangular field that measures 40m long and 20m wide. The whole length of the pitch must be covered by kickboards to prevent the ball from going out of play. The duration of the match is 50 minutes, divided into two 25-minute halves. Each team can request a one-minute time-out in each half. During the last two minutes of both halves, and in case of an extra time, the timekeeper must stop the clock for a free kick, kick-in, goal kick and corner kick. Eight teams, divided into two groups of four, will compete at Rio 2016. The top two teams in each group will qualify for the semi-finals. Group A: Brazil, Iran, Morocco and Turkey Group B: Argentina, China, Mexico and Russia

Paralympic Sport A-Z: Sitting volleyball
 
02:29
Sitting volleyball was introduced to the world at the Arnhem 1980 Paralympic Games. It requires a smaller court (10m x 6m) and a lower net, and the game is considerably faster than standing volleyball. It’s played in a best-of-five set format, and the first to reach 25 points (with at least a 2-point lead) wins the game. Teams consist of mixed classes in male and female events, with six on the court at a time. At all times, an athletes’ pelvis must be touching the ground, and service blocks are allowed. At the London 2012 Games, 198 athletes competed in the sport.

'All about ability' - How the Paralympic Movement is maintaining momentum
 
05:00
The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has launched a video called "All about ability" to mark the United Nations International Day of Persons with Disabilities. This year's day is themed "Break Barriers, Open Doors: for an inclusive society and development for all". The day provides an opportunity to further raise awareness about accessibility with the ultimate goal or removing barriers and enabling equal participation for all persons with an impairment. The IPC's video celebrates the contributions made by para-athletes as agents of change and development in the communities in which they live. It expresses the IPC's aspiration that the performances and incredible stories of athletes teach the values of acceptance and appreciation for people with an impairment, contributing to the development of a more equitable society with respect and equal opportunities for all individuals. In naming the film "All about ability", the IPC focuses on the abilities of athletes rather than their disabilities. "Your performances will inspire and excite the world," IPC President Sir Philip Craven says in the film. "You will not just inspire a generation, but many generations to come." The film looks back on the history of the Paralympic Movement and celebrates the milestones achieved so far in terms of athlete participation, development of sporting events, increased commercial support and media coverage. It ends with the call to action that "Together we are spreading a message of respect and equal opportunity for all individuals." he International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement. Its purpose is to organise the summer and winter Paralympic Games and act as the International Federation for nine sports, supervising and coordinating World Championships and other competitions. The vision of the IPC, run by 200 members, is 'To enable Paralympic athletes to achieve sporting excellence and inspire and excite the world.'

Top 10 Moments of 2012 in Paralympic Sport
 
10:40
Italian handcyclist Alex Zanardi takes the IPC's top moment of 2012 after winning two Paralympic golds on the same course he competed on as a Formula 1 driver. The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has revealed that Italian handcyclist Alex Zanardi's London 2012 performance comes in as No. 1 in its Top 50 Paralympic Moments of 2012. The 45-year-old became a global sensation after winning gold in the men's individual H4 time trial and road race at Brands Hatch, 21 years after racing there as a Formula 1 driver. He was voted the IPC's Male Athlete of the Month for August/September for his performance, which also included a silver with his Italian teammates in the mixed team relay H1-4. Zanardi lost both his legs when he was injured in the American Memorial 500 cart event in Germany in September 2001.

Paralympic Sports A-Z: Athletics
 
02:41
Athletics was one of the original Paralympic sports, having been part of the Games since 1960, and has grown to become the most popular sport attracting the largest crowds. The sport offers a range of competitions and events, and is open to male and female athletes in all impairment groups. It is governed by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and co-ordinated by the IPC Athletics Sports Technical Committee. Disciplines and events The events on the Paralympic programme include: Track events: sprint (100m, 200m, 400m); middle distance (800m, 1,500m); long distance (5,000m, 10,000m) and relay races (4x100m, 4x400m) In the relay events, each competitor completes an equal a portion of the total distance. Each athlete passes a baton to the next, except in wheelchair events, where touching the teammate's body with the hand is enough. Road event: marathon Field events: high jump, long jump, triple jump, discus, shot put, javelin, club throw Depending on the class, athletes competing in the throwing events may throw from a standing position or seated, except for club throw, where athletes compete seated in wheelchairs or on platforms. The aim in each event is simple — outperform your opponent. There will be 177 total medal events in athletics at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games. Classification Athletes compete according to their functional classification in each event. Some compete in wheelchairs and some with prostheses, while those who are visually impaired can receive guidance from a sighted guide. Athletes who are eligible to compete in Para athletics are allocated to a sport class, with each class consisting of athletes who have impairments that cause approximately the same amount of activity limitation in the disciplines – running, wheelchair racing, jumps and throws. Dedicated information on Para athletics classification will be published later on the IPC website in this Sport Week feature series. Competitions In addition to the Paralympic Games, World, Asian and European Championships are held every two years. A series of Grand Prix events are also held to give athlete competition year around. A complete list of Para athletics competitions can be found on the IPC Athletics website. Sports equipment Many athletics events require specific sports equipment for example, the discus, shot or javelin. In addition, athletes may use certain assistive devices as specified in the IPC Athletics rules. Wheelchairs are considered to be sports equipment in track and field events. Athletics wheelchairs tend to be very lightweight. The dimensions and features of wheelchairs are clearly specified in the IPC Athletics rules. Prosthetic devices may be used by amputees. These have been specifically developed to withstand the demands of sports competition. IPC rules require the use of leg prostheses in track events; however, the use of prostheses in field events is optional. Rope tethers or other devices may be used by runners with a visual impairment to link with their sighted guides. Acoustic devices (or a sighted "caller") may be used to indicate take-off in jumping events, throwing target areas, etc.

Sport A-Z: Goalball
 
02:47
Goalball was devised in 1946 in an effort to rehabilitate visually impaired veterans who returned from World War II. In 1976, it was then introduced to the world at the Paralympic Games in Toronto. The sport, exclusively for athletes with visual impairments, consists of two halves of 12 minutes each and athletes wear blackout masks on a playing court. The object of the game is to roll the ball into the opposite goal while opposing players try to block the ball with their bodies. Bells inside the balls help orient the players, indicating the direction of the on-coming ball. Therefore, while play is in progress, complete silence is required in the venue to allow the players to instantly react to the ball.

Day 3 evening | Men's triathlon highlights | Rio 2016 Paralympic Games
 
07:29
With one glance, Germany’s Martin Schulz checked behind him. There was no-one even close. So he stopped running and calmingly walked towards the finish line, savouring the moment of being crowned the first ever Para triathlon Paralympic champion. “This is the best day of my sport career,” said the three-time world champion. “The best feelings I ever had in the last metres of the race, it was so emotional. “Everything from the past years, all the emotions, all the support from my family and my friends and all the hard training – it all came back into my mind.” In the sport’s Paralympic debut on Saturday (10 September) on Fort Copacabana, Schulz kissed the ground as he claimed the men’s PT4 gold in 1:02:37. Then he embraced his biggest rival, Canadian Stefan Daniel, at the finish line. Daniel, who upset Schulz in the 2015 World Championships with the gold, took the silver medal in 1:03:05. The unexpected podium finisher was Spain’s Jairo Ruiz Lopez, who found speed after each transition to reach the podium in 1:03:14. Lopez’s best major finish was third at the 2016 World Championships in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Great Britain’s George Peasgood emerged from the water with more than a minute lead over Schulz. But the German cut the lead after each transition, eventually leading two seconds in the last lap of the bike segment. “But then I think that probably I’ve done the best bike section of my whole career,” Schulz said. “I pushed hard and I took some advantage on [Stefan]. “After the bike I had more seconds of advantage than I even hoped. But the run was the hardest run I’ve ever done, because I had tough moments, I felt some problems to breathe.” Despite hanging back as far as fifth place, Daniel picked up significant ground on the run – his strongest of the three segments. He ran with Lopez but eventually pulled away for the silver. “I was in a podium position coming out of the bike, so I had to earn every spot that I could,” Daniel said. “But Martin was too far up over there. He beat me fair and square.” “I’m still a teenager. I still have a lot of room to grow.” Great Britain’s Andrew Lewis joined Schulz in making Paralympic history, capturing gold in the men’s PT2. “I thought that I was dreaming,” said Lewis, who won in 1:11:49. “I couldn’t believe that it was real.” Lewis knew he would be behind in the water, especially with former Para swimmer Mark Barr of the USA finishing the first leg quickly. But the Briton caught up on the run, something he said he and his coach have been honing on. “I understood that I could do it on the run,” said Lewis, who despite a poor showing at the 2015 Worlds put his name in medal contention when he won the World title in July. “When I could see the guys in front of me I knew I could do it, that I could catch them.” It was a tight battle for silver, with Italy’s reigning world champion Michele Ferrarin (1:12:30) pulling his way out for the silver medal. Africa’s Mohamed Lahna, the lone African athlete in the competition, appeared well out of podium contention after finishing fifth in both the swim and bike but found his stride in the run to finish just five seconds behind Ferrarin for bronze. The Netherlands dominated the men’s PT1, with Jetz Plat (59:31) and Geert Schipper (1:01:30) topping with gold and silver, respectively. Italy’s Giovanni Achenza (1:01:45) completed the podium with the bronze. Being the first to complete the swim and bike legs, Plat build himself a cushion entering the running portion and winning about two minutes ahead of his fellow country man. Gold medal favourite and five-time world champion Bill Chaffey of Australia just missed the podium. “It’s just historic,” Plat said. “For me, a three-time European champion and one-time world champion, I am so proud and happy with my performance. “The swim was difficult because it is in the sea and it is really different than normal water,” Plat said. “And the bike it so fast because it is flat. “We train together, so we make each other stronger and stronger,” Plat added about his teammate Schipper. As for the secret behind the Dutch dominance in the men’s PT1: “We eat a lot of potatoes,” Schipper joked. The Rio 2016 Paralympic Games were held from 7-18 September 2016. Athletes from more than 160 countries competed in 528 medal events in 22 different sports.

Samkelo RADEBE, Zivan SMITH and Arnu FOURIE combined over the first three legs to give PISTORIUS a fractional advantage over Brazil but lined up three lanes inside him was Alan OLIVEIRA (BRA), who had sensationally beaten PISTORIUS to the individual T44 200m title on Sunday. However, this time there was to be no upset as PISTORIUS powered down the home straight while OLIVEIRA failed to reproduce the stunning late surge that took him past his South African rival in the final metres the last time the pair met in London 2012, which prompted PISTORIUS's now infamous comments about the legality of OlIVEIRA's running blades. BRAZIL were disqualified after the race had been concluded for a baton-passing violation, leaving China to take the silver medals in an Asian record 42.98. PISTORIUS said "We smashed that world record. Each guy here did his job. I said to the guys to stay calm and focused." Alan Fonteles Cardoso OLIVEIRA (BRA) said about Brazil being disqualified: "We are very disappointedabout this because we had the result and were celebrating. It's so disappointing to be disqualified after everything." For further information, please visit http://www.paralympic.org.

Paralympic Sports A-Z: Wheelchair fencing
 
02:06
Find out all you need to know about the Paralympic sport of wheelchair fencing, including the history, rules, classification and equipment. For more info go to: http://www.paralympic.org/wheelchair-fencing Wheelchair fencing was developed by Sir Ludwig Guttmann, the founder of the Paralympic Games. Having featured at the International Stoke Mandeville Games in Great Britain in 1952, the sport was then on the programme at the very first Paralympics in 1960. Today wheelchair fencing is governed by the International Wheelchair and Amputee Sports Federation (IWAS) Starting positions In wheelchair fencing, the competitors’ wheelchairs are firmly fixed to a metal frame in the competition area, which is known as the “piste.” Given the fast and furious nature of the sport, competitors are required to wear a protective mask, gloves and jacket at all times. In the epee event, a metal-lined apron is used to protect the fencers’ legs and wheelchairs. The fencers start with blades raised in the “en garde” position. This position is held until the referee calls “play” and the bout begins. Events and weapons At the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, 14 wheelchair fencing medals will be available across individual and team events. Events are divided across three weapons – epee, foil and sabre. The epee is the heaviest weapon at 770g and is more rigid than the other swords. Points are scored by touching the tip of the blade on any part of the opponent’s body above the waist. The foil is lighter and highly flexible. In the foil event, points are awarded for landing the tip of the blade on the opponent’s torso, but not the limbs or head. The sabre has a short, flexible blade and differs from the other events in that points are scored by hitting the opponent with the cutting edge, the flat or the back of the blade. Duration and scoring An electronic scoring system registers when a hit has been successfully landed and the scoreboard updates accordingly. In the early pool rounds, the winner is the first fencer to reach five points or the fencer with the highest score after a single bout of three minutes. In the direct elimination rounds, the victor is the first to 15 points or whoever has the most points after three bouts of three minutes. In team matches, teams are made up of three fencers. Each fencer faces each opponent in the other team in a single bout of three minutes. The winning team is the team with the most points when the time is up, or the first to reach a cumulative score of 45 points. Classification At the Paralympic Games, wheelchair fencers compete in two classifications: • Class A athletes have good trunk control, allowing them to bend forward and sideways explosively when attacking their opponent or dodging an attack. • Class B have an impairment that impacts their legs as well as their trunk or their fencing arm. A dedicated article on wheelchair fencing classification will be published later on the IPC website in this Sport Week feature series.

Find out all you need to know about the Paralympic sport of shooting, including the history, rules, classification and equipment. For more info go to: http://www.paralympic.org/shooting Shooting is the ultimate test of accuracy and control and at the Paralympic Games, athletes with physical impairments compete in both rifle and pistol events. In this precision sport, athletes use focus and controlled breathing to reduce their heart rates and improve stability and high performance. This ability to steady hand and mind to deliver a sequence of shots requires well-developed powers of concentration and emotional control. Athletes compete in events from distances of 10m, 25m and 50m in men’s, women’s and mixed competitions. Of the 12 Paralympic shooting events, six are open to both women and men, three are open to women only and three are open to men only. The sport is governed by the IPC and co-ordinated by the IPC Shooting Sport Technical Committee and Management team. The sport follows rules of the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) in conjunction with its own IPC Shooting Technical Rules and Regulations, which take into account the considerations that exist for Para athletes in shooting sport. It has been on the Paralympic programme since Toronto 1976 and today is practiced in over 65 countries.

Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Medal Event Programme
 
02:11
The Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games will feature 4,400 athletes who will compete in 537 medal events the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) has announced. The final medal event programme and athlete quotas were approved by the IPC Governing Board on Monday (4 September) following the conclusion of a 10-month-long consultation exercise with international federations. Key highlights include: • At least 1,756 slots for female athletes, the most ever, which represents a 17 per cent increase in the number of women that took part in London 2012. This number is likely to increase further due to the allocation of 294 gender free slots. • Badminton and taekwondo, the two sports that will make their Paralympic debut in Tokyo, have been awarded with 14 and 6 medal events respectively • Canoe, which made its Paralympic debut at Rio 2016 with six medal events, will have nine medal events due to the inclusion of three va’a class events • As part of the IPC’s drive to increase opportunities for athletes with high support needs, the sport of boccia has been allocated 116 athlete slots, 8 more than Rio 2016 • Compared to Rio 2016 14 sports will feature the same number of athletes. The sports of boccia, canoe, judo, shooting, table tennis, triathlon and wheelchair fencing all have additional slots • Four sports – canoe, shooting, table tennis and wheelchair fencing – have more medal events than Rio 2016 while athletics and swimming have less events. • The final list of events for athletics, swimming and triathlon will be published at later dates • A full breakdown of the events can be found at: https://www.paralympic.org/sites/default/files/document/170904115428802_... Sir Philip Craven, the IPC President’s, said: “We are greatly excited about the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic programme which we are confident can build on the success of Rio 2016, a Games that were widely regarded as the best yet in terms of athletic performance. “It is testament to the strength of Paralympic sport and the work of the international federations that the competition to secure medal events and athletes quotas at the Paralympic Games is now equally as competitive and hotly contested as the action on the field of play. “In determining the final Tokyo 2020 programme we wanted to increase the number of slots for female athletes and athletes with high support needs. At the same time we did not want to increase costs for the Tokyo 2020 Organising Committee having already identified a number of cost savings. We believe we have achieved all of our objectives and delivered a programme that will showcase the best of what Paralympic sport and Paralympic athletes have to offer at Tokyo 2020.” Chelsey Gotell, Chair of the IPC Athletes’ Council, said: “"I think the final Tokyo 2020 medals event programme provides a good balance across all sports and all impairment groups. "I am particularly pleased that Tokyo 2020 will feature more women than ever before and an increase in athletes with high support needs. This is a great step in the right direction and the international federations and IPC should be congratulated for this move. “With 19 of the 22 sports medal events announced, this will help give many athletes a clearly defined road map for the less than three years leading into Tokyo 2020. “I feel great empathy for those athletes whose events are not on the programme, however I know there are valid reasons behind the IPC’s decisions which I know they will feedback to international federations.” Between them international federations submitted to the IPC in January 2017 proposals to include 4,979 athletes and 555 medal events in Tokyo. The Rio 2016 Paralympic Games featured 4,328 athletes who competed in 528 medal events. The non-inclusion of football 7-a-side and sailing in Tokyo 2020 provided 192 athlete slots and four medal events.
