The database includes all preliminaries, heats and finals plus useful information such as scores, times, distances, etc, as well as the achievement of world and Paralympic records. It is separated into two different search options, the 'General Search' by Games, Sport and Event, and the 'Athlete Search' by Athlete's Name, Games, Sport and NPC.
With this wealth of information, the Paralympic Games Historical Results Database promises to be one of the most visited tools on the IPC website.
Xavier GONZALEZ, IPC Chief Executive Officer, said, 'The IPC is proud to be able to provide such a fantastic tool for everyone interested in results of the Paralympic Games. It will establish a new standard in the Paralympic Games results search and perfectly complements our services to athletes, National Paralympic Committees, International Federations and other interested users.'
Sailing was a demonstration event at the 1996 Olympic Games and was a medal sport for the Single-Person Keelboat 2.4 Metre and Three-Person Keelboat Sonar in 2000 and 2004. In the Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games a third sailing event joins the programme, the Two-Person Keelboat contested in the SKUD18.
