German Paralympian Markus Rehm has already jumped the required distance of 8 point 18 meters to qualify for Rio 2016. The latest research concluded his prosthesis is a disadvantage in the approach.
The experts are leaving everything open, after looking into the use of prosthetic limbs. Now given the go ahead, Paralympic champion Markus Rehm is dreaming of a spot at the Rio Games this summer.
The year 2016 promised much, with major football championships and an Olympic Games. It certainly delivered, with some unlikely champions and the world's best athletes doing what they do best.
The idea of merging the Olympic and Paralympic Games has been discussed from time to time. However but there is little support for the idea among the associations that govern the various sports represented.
