Abstract

In athletics, is there an equivalence between a disability and a serious long-term injury? Both prevent an athlete from competing based on a particular disability, temporary or permanent. Wouldn’t an equivalence between the two diminish the nature of a disability or alter the nature and meritocracy of a sport? Some may say that the two conditions are equivalent because both an individual with a disability and an individual with a long-term injury cannot perform in their sports at what most people would consider “one-hundred percent.”
