COVID-19 restrictions have had a profound impact sports participation – for everyone. Competitions have been cancelled, training disrupted and funding lost. For many athletes with disability COVID-19 has been particularly challenging, with preparations for Tokyo 2020 now extended to 2021. But athletes with disabilities are experts at adapting – so how have they responded to the current challenges? What lies ahead and what can we expect in the months ahead.
