IPC Athletics is giving away two sets of tickets for the Grand Prix Final in Birmingham, UK, on Saturday, 29 June.
Featuring many faces from London 2012, the final marks the culmination of a series of six Grand Prix events that have taken place across the world this season. More than 140 athletes are set to compete across 18 disciplines.
It is also the final event ahead of the 2013 IPC Athletics World Championships in Lyon, France, which will feature 1,300 athletes from 90 countries and be the biggest gathering of international athletes since London 2012.
Athletes will be assessing their competition in Birmingham to see who they need to look out for in Lyon, as well as putting in strong performances of their own in a bid to show their form.
Tickets can be won via Twitter and a caption competition on Facebook.
