Criteria removing Paralympic sailing to be published
Published on February 6th, 2015
(February 6, 2015) – A possible reprieve for sailing at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games could emerge next week when the report by the International Paralympic Committee governing board into the selection criteria is published. This follows last weekend’s decision by the board to drop sailing as a sport for Japan. IFDS chairman and ten-time Irish paralympic veteran John Twomey told The Irish Times that all queries from the IPC had been fully replied to, and that the possibility for reinstatement will become more apparent once the decision details become available.
