With just over 500 days to go until the Opening Ceremony of the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games, the Swedish Paralympic Committee has published its candidate list of athletes.
Last weekend (11-12 April) a Paralympic camp for potential athletes was held in Stockholm, Sweden. A candidate athlete is considered to have a possible chance of making Rio 2016 providing they qualify and meet the Swedish Paralympic Committee’s selection criteria.
One of the prerequisites for being a part of the published list is also having completed a number of elements of the data during the weekend's camp.
The list is fluid and athletes may be added or removed during the build-up to Rio.
