Germany’s athletics federation has decided to include disabled athletes in national competitions, although their results will be counted separately.
The ruling takes effect on Jan. 1 and stems from the debate surrounding Paralympic champion Markus Rehm, an amputee who won the national long jump title competing with a carbon-fiber prosthesis.
The federation left Rehm off the national team for the European Championships and argued that the prosthesis gives him an unfair advantage.
The federation says the ruling will stay in force until it is determined scientifically whether prostheses and similar aides give a competitive advantage or not, or until the international federation makes a decision.
