Overview

Paralympic swimmers at Tokyo 2020 will compete in freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke and medley events.

Athletes can have a physical, visual or intellectual impairment. The rules of the Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA) are modified to include optional starting platforms and in-water starts for some athletes or the use of signals or ‘tappers’ for those with visual impairments. No prostheses or assistive devices are allowed in the pool.

Para Swimming is second only to Para Athletics in the number of athletes participating in events
