EUROPEAN ROWING INDOOR CHAMPIONSHIPS PARA EVENTS - FISA CLASSIFICATION IS MANDATORY
FISA Classification is required for the European Rowing Indoor Championships PR1, PR2, and PR3 events. To view the list of athletes who have been internationally classified, please view the Master Athlete Classification List on the Para Rowing Information page of the FISA Website.
Athletes taking part in these events who have not yet been internationally classified may request to be classified the day prior to competition (10 January 2020). In order to do so, athletes must submit medical documentation to FISA (links below). These documents must be submitted via the athlete’s National Federations using the FISA Classification portal 45 days prior to classification, i.e. no later than 26 November 2019. Athletes and their National Federations that submit documentation after this deadline will not be guaranteed a classification opportunity. If a Czech para athlete is not able to be classified, they will be able to enter the Czech Rowing Indoor National Championship events, which do not require FISA classification. Non-Czech European Athletes who are not able to classified would not be able to enter the para rowing events at the 2019 European Rowing Indoor Championships.
Please note that only physical impairment classification will be available at this event. Visually impaired athletes requiring a classification will need to follow the above process with regards to documentation, and will be issued a temporary classification for this event if they are found to be eligible based on their documentation.

FISA has created an online tool to help potential para athletes determine their eligibility for para rowing and to give an indication of what sport class they may be eligible for. The online tool is available HERE.
