Paralympics Track and Field Schedule Needed

Paralympics Track and Field Schedule Needed

Post by John M. Troste » Fri, 16 Aug 1996 04:00:00


My daughter would like to go see the Track and Field ('Athletics')
Finals - specifically Long Jump and Decathalon, so she can see her
'friend' Al Mead do his thing in the Paralympics.

Unfortunately, the paralympic web site does not break down the
competition to what heat of what event occurs on which day.  It only
says that the Athletics will be held in the Olympic Stadium from August
17th through August 25th.

Does anyone know of a source of more complete competition information
for the Paralympic Games?

Sorry, but Al Mead will not be competing this year.  He had an injury
just prior to the team trials and was not able to qualify.  However, if
she would like to catch any other specific events, I have a schedule
(but I have some trouble decoding the classification codes so I can't
always give an exact session).  For example, the Pentathalon (not
Decathalon) events for people with amputations seem to be Monday morning
and Tuesday morning (two different classifications and I don't know the
difference between a 42 and a 44).

Hope you have fun!
