Disciplines

Wheelchair athletes compete in five field disciplines:

The athletes use individually designed throwing frames for these events. These frames enable the athletes to use the same throwing equipment (javelins, discus, shot etc) as able bodied athletes. The only event unique to wheelchair athletics is the club. In this event a special wooden club is thrown using a technique similar to the discus.

Pentathlon, the most gruelling of events, is a combination of three field and two track events to be completed by the athlete in a single day. The combination of events making up the pentathlon may differ according to the individual athletes category.
