This is GREAT NEWS and very exciting for our DSA members as it opens up the sport to more players and also increases the medal events from one to three for people with dwarfism.
Also announced today was the Athletics event programme with Female Shot and Discus for F40/F41 class and Javelin and Shot for Men in the F41/F40 class.
