Comitetul Naţional Paralimpic Român
NPC Romania has supported Downs Syndrome athletes for a long time not only in national training opportunities and competitions but also as well as participating in international competitions and events. NPC Romania has been a member of the Downs Syndrome Swimming Association for quite a few years now and also supports the idea that Class S14 should be split into two different classes, one of which would sustain DS athletes.
- Mr. Badea Bogdan Valentin -20 years old: Freestyle, Butterfly and Backstroke.
- Mrs. Veress Erna – 33 years old: Breaststroke
- Mr. Palimariu Andrei –19 years old: Breaststroke and Backstroke
- Mr. Zelenak David -15 years old: Butterfly and Freestyle
At the present moment we have a number of clubs who prepare athletes with Downs Syndrome for different sports such as: Athletics, Gymnastics, Judo, Table Tennis and Taekwondo and we believe that we shall be able to achieve the qualification standards for these sports too in the future.
