Competition Information

Competition Programme (updated May 22, 2009)

Competitions will be held according to the IPC Swimming Rules. See events order in attachment Competition Programme.
There will be heats only, no finals in all paralympic events for classes S1-S13. Points score system created by KONTAKT bB will be used to compare the results among all the classes for each distance and stroke. All heats will be seeded according to entered times (all classes together).
Competitors must present themselves to the call up area at least three heats prior to their heat. It is the competitor’s responsibility to be at the start in time.

Medals - updated

There will be medal ceremony for each event for the best three results according the points on a multi-disability basis in three age groups – 19 and older, 15 – 18, 14 and younger.

Doping control - updated

: Due to the lower number of entries and due to the fact, that with all respect to the participating swimmers, it would appear that world or regional records are unlikely, Organising Committee decided to cancel the doping control. It means that the times will be included into the world ranking, but there will no longer be the opportunity for European or World Records to be ratified.
