Paralympic Competitor Classification

I thought my readers would like to know that when it comes to the #Paralympics, classification of the competitors go beyond male or female to include disability such as hearing impairment, visual impairment, cerebral palsy, paraplegic and amputee. Then, within each #disability classification, there is further definition such as single amputees and double amputees. Athletes who use wheelchairs are even further classified by where their spine was broken.
