Athletics On Your Mark. Athletics (a.k.a. track and field) is the largest and one of the most popular sporting events on the international stage. But it all starts on a local track or field. Athletes of all disability types compete in a myriad of track and field sports, such as sprint and endurance running and racing, long jump, high jump, shot put and javelin just to name a few.

There are plenty of adaptive devices and equipment to aide athletes on the track and the field. Blind and visually impaired athletes often pair up with a guide runner. Prosthetic blades propel leg amputees and wheelchair athletes often use specialized racing chairs. So Get Set and Go with Athletics Ontario.
