IOSD RECOGNITIONS

International Organisations of Sports for the Disabled (IOSDs) are independent organisations recognised by the IPC as the sole representatives of a specific impairment group.


IOSDs work in conjunction with the IPC to provide specific expertise to develop sport for athletes with an impairment from the grassroots level to the elite level. They act as the governing body for some of the impairment specific sports that are a part of the Paralympic Games programme.

 

IBSA

International Blind Sports Federation

IBSA, the International Blind Sports Federation, is in charge of a wide range of sports for athletes who are blind or partially sighted. IBSA was founded in April 1981 when representatives from 30 countries met at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France, to set up the organisation. IBSA is registered as a non-profit making organisation in Germany. We are full and founding members of the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), where we represent the interests of visually impaired sportsmen and sportswomen. In IBSA we believe sport is one of the best ways to promote mainstreaming and integration in society for people with a visual impairment. Sport can help people overcome their disability by boosting their self-esteem and their ability to overcome adversity. To achieve our goals, we encourage all blind and visually impaired people to get involved in different sports and physical activities. You too can become a blind athlete and take part in competitions ranging from school sports to elite championships for the visually impaired and the Paralympic Games.

SPORT UNION DOWN SYNDROME

SU-DS promotes sport worldwide for athletes with Down syndrome to the highest levels of sporting excellence.

It is a well-known fact that individuals with Down syndrome derive measurable physiologic and psychologic benefits from participation in physical activities on a recreational level. SU-DS however promotes the opportunity as one in which they can also be competitive.  We strive to provide a platform where persons with Down syndrome can compete in their sport on the international stage. We envision growing to such an extent that every country in the world will be represented at our events. Ultimately, SU-DS aims to approach the International Paralympic committee for it to recognise the disability of Down syndrome as a new class.  This will ensure that these athletes, who also have physical limitations, no longer face the
disadvantage of competing against athletes with an Intellectual disability.
