With the 2016 IPC Athletics Asia-Oceania Championships having wrapped up yesterday, it is worth looking at some of the best times put up so far in 2016 in this event with an eye towards Rio and the 2016 Summer Paralympics.   The A-Qualifying time for Rio in this event is 11.25  while the B-Qualifying time is 11.60.  The T45/46/47 classes are combined for the Paralympic Games.  The T46/T47 classes were combined in Dubai.


Epeli Baleibau was one of the Fijian competitors in Dubai.  He failed to make it out of the heats, and his country was one of three to leave the 2016 IPC Athletics Asia-Oceania Championships without claiming a single medal.  The others included New Zealand and Afghanistan.
