INTERNATIONAL PARALYMPIC COMMITTEE

<P>All sit-skiers (in Para alpine skiing and Para Nordic skiing) have an impairment affecting their legs. They are allocated different sport classes depending on their sitting balance, which is very important for acceleration and balancing during the races.<br /><br />Watch this classifictaion video with Para alpine sit skier Arly Velasquez (Mexico) to learn more about the classification for sit skiers in Para alpine skiing and Para Nordic skiing. Be fully aware of how it works before you watch the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Paralympic Games.<br /><br />More information can be found on the Paralympic.org website, at: www.Paralympic.org/pyeongchang-2018/alpine-skiing</P&gt;
