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 15:40.00 while the B-Qualifying time is 15:57.00.
