Athletics is divided in track events and field events. Disabled athletes compete in the same field events as non-disabled athletes apart from hammer throw and pole vault. In track events there are no events that include hurdles. Javelin, discus and some of the track events are excluded from indoor competitions.

Some athletes compete in wheelchairs, others with prostheses while athletes with blindness/visual impairment compete with the guidance of a sighted guide. Athletes compete according to their functional classifications in each event and these events are continually being redefined to include as many athletes as possible.
