2020 is already here, and the time for the biggest sporting event is counting down. The TOKYO 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games are less than 7 months away, and our athletes are now struggling to make their best in order to attend in the biggest sporting event.

For Visually Impaired Athletes, the qualification for major sports events of 2020 (European Athletics Championships and Tokyo Paralympic Games) depends exclusively on their participation in specific international events to meet the criteria set by the International Paralympic Committee and National Athletics Federation.

Specifically, the athletes with visual impairments Eleftherios Zygouras and Christos Tsiouris, are preparing to participate in the international Handisport Open Paris Grand Prix (Paris, 6-8 May 2020) and Jesolo 2020 World Para Athletics Grand Prix (Jesolo, Italy, 19-24 May 2020).
