2012 Paralympics - Track and Field

Team USA Track and Field will include 12 U of I athletes and Tony Iniguez as a coach. The rules of Paralympic track and field are almost identical to those of its non-disabled counterpart.  Certain allowances are made to accommodate certain disabilities.  For example, the blind and more severely visually impaired runners compete with guide runners, who are often attached by the wrist with a tether to the runner.
