World Championships Marathon Start Line just several months after
IPC Athletics member phone call
My grandpa has been a farmer all his life and he say´s that crop planting (it should be compare with the standards criteria) will provide fruits (considered as the athletes) but if we do not make properly a crop planting and we fix standards so high as the one fixed for the maraton Wheelchair división (T54) for man and woman división at last World Championships, We´ll gen an insignificant fruit quantity and quality.
Before Marathon Standards were changed on July 27th 2010 (they were as high that not any man and woman could achieve them), for not lying I´ll say just three man from France had got by that time the A standard and any woman, but that sad fact appeared to be a satisfactory result for IPC Athletics leaders, of course, several nations began to concern and they were forced to change the standard for a “real one" and you can see this at the IAAF/IPC Athletics stats compare table, where you see that IAAF standard for marathon is such a much easier than for the other events maybe due to they want a big size event with a big number of runners who´ll make more interesting to the public the 42,192Km course and not setting an impossible standard, converting the course in a real desert with a small field and low number of racers… Why IPC Athletics standards for Marathon were so high?
I will make a deeper analysis of marathon standards, because honestly these lines you will read now are amazing and society must begin to know the darker side of Paralympic Athletics.
Until July 27th 2010 and after pressure from several nations who raised concerns about ridiculous standards for maratón. To get the A standard in woman división for World Championships they needed to finished a marathon in a time of 1h42min… What does 1h42min mean in a world history ranking for woman wheelchair marathon? If we wanna look to world history ranking of marathon or (best ever time) at IPC Athletics web, What do we find?... ANYTHING.
Let´s gona do the same process with the A standard (1h25min) of man wheelchair marathon class T54 for last World Championships celebrated in Christchurch and we will find again… ANYTHING, Sad or deplorable?...
Now let´s gonna do the same process at the IAAF web (International Athletics Federation) and we´ll find not only the world record for marathon in man and woman división, we´ll even can find the continent record ( Africa, America, Europe and Asia).
