Athletics

The TTPC Athletics Programme provides the best possible coaching together with state of the art and best practice methods in developing our Athletes with Disabilities (AWDs). Athletes are coached to compete according to their functional classifications in each event and these events are continually being redefined to include as many athletes as possible. Athletics includes:

  • Track events: Sprint (100m, 200m, 400m), Middle Distance (800m, 1500m), Long Distance (5,000m, 10,000m) and Relay races (4x100m, 4x400m)
  • Road event: Marathon
  • Jumping events: High Jump, Long Jump and Triple Jump
  • Throwing events: Discus, Shot Put, Javelin
  • Combined events: Pentathlon (track and road events, jumping events and throwing events, depending on the athletes' classification).
