Wheelchair Fencing

The wheelchairs allow disabled athletes (from amputees, paraplegics, to those suffering spastic tetraplegia) to compete one against the other, divided by categories and gender, a high level, paralympic discipline with the same rules as the standing fencing sport, except for the fact that they sit tied to the wheelchairs and only move the upper part of the body, providing for a very fast pace during the competitions, requiring a high level of concentration, a constant physical and psychic preparation. Competitions are divided in World Cups, National, Regional (European, American, Asian) and World Championships, culminating in the Paralympic Games. The year 2006 was an important landmark, since for the first time the World Championships for both standing and wheelchair athletes were held in the same place (Turin, Italy) in the same timeframe. The goal is to unify more and more competitions, for a real intergration and an overcoming of all kind of barriers. (Hits: 17211)
