How does classification work in Shooting Para sport?
Shooting Para sport is the sport of shooting for Para athletes who have a physical impairment
leading to reduced function in the lower and/or upper limbs.
Classification provides the structure for fair and equitable competition to ensure that winning is determined by skill, fitness, power, endurance, tactical ability and mental focus. Classification groups Para athletes into a sport class according to the degree of activity limitation resulting from their impairment. In Shooting Para sport, there are three different sport classes:
SPORT CLASS SH1 (PISTOL)
Para athletes with upper and/or lower limb impairment competing in pistol events are in the SH1 class.
SPORT CLASS SH1 (RIFLE)
This sport class is designated to Para athletes with lower limb impairment for competition in rifle events.
SPORT CLASS SH2 (RIFLE)
This sport class is for rifle events only, and is designated to Para athletes with upper limb impairment (which necessitates them to use a shooting stand to support the rifle), all or not in combination with lower limb impairment.
