This volume maps out the development perspectives of paralympic sport. The second edition of the International Paralympic Committee's VISTA Conference series comprised 60 contributions by international experts. Held at the German Sport University in Cologne, the event brought together scientists, coaches, athletes and administrators from over 40 countries who addressed all major issues of paralympic sport - sport performance (including exercise physiology, advances in training techniques, and technical developments in equipment and sport medicine); classification; integration/development recruitment; ethics; organization and administration; and media, marketing and sponsoring. The result is a survey of the fast expanding field of sport for athletes with a disability.
