Classification

Athletes competing in Paralympic sports have impairments which lead to competitive disadvantages during sports competitions. As such, a classification system provides a structure for competition by determining the eligibility of athletes in the sport, and grouping the eligible athletes together in sport classes according to their limitation of activity in the sport.

LEXI is a on-screen guide to parasport classification. It illustrates the different kinds of impairments in each class by simply using four colours.

  • Green - indicates no impairment
  • Red denotes a high degree of impairment and
  • in between with Yellow for low and Orange for moderate.
  • When you see a space, it represents a missing limb.
