Athletics Australia will provide information as to the date and location of the 2019 International Classification opportunity later this year.
Due to a large number of current internationally classified athletes being placed on 'Review' status - priority for International Classification will be determined by Athletics Australia, based on performances and likelihood of athletes representing Australia at either the 2019 WPA Championships or 2020 Paralympics.
Preparing for International Classification can be a costly and timely process. If you wish to attend International Classification in 2019 please review the information provided below relevant to your classification category and contact Steve Caddy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to inform Athletics Australia of your intent to register.
