This article is part of a ParaSport News series of articles looking at athletics world records and world records progression.
T35 is the first of the ambulant classes for people with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities. It is also the first women’s class where there a number of records and progression data is a bit more available. Most of these records were set in the past few years, with the oldest available record dating to the 2008 Summer Paralympics, when Poland’s Renata Chilewska set a world record in the javelin with a distance of 25.59 meters. Records without multiples include Australian Isis Holt’s 100 meters set at last year’s IPC Athletics World Championships in a time of 0:13.63. Italy’s Oxana Corso holds the 400 meters world record with a time of 1:14.69 set earlier this year. The United States’ Aubrey Headon holds the long jump world record, set in 2014 in Mesa, Arizona with a distance of 2.29 meters.
Holt, born in 2001, holds at least a pair of world records in the T35 200 meters. Her first was set at the 2015 IPC World Championships where she had a time of 28.57. She bettered this in April of this year in Sydney when she ran it in 28.30.
The 4×100 meters has three records, with the oldest dating back to 2011 when the Ukrainians set a time of 55.07 at the World Championships. 17 months later, the Russians bettered this time with 0:54.77 at the European Championships in the Netherlands. Great Britain bettered it in 2015, and then again at the European Championships this year with a time of 0:51.63, over three seconds faster than the previous Russian record.
For both the discus throw and the shot put, Ukrainian Mariia Pomazan holds multiple records in the event, and has been consistently bettering her distances since 2011. She went from a record of 28.73 meters in the discus in 2011 to 31.42 meters in 2013. In the shot put, she went from a record of 10.61 meters in 2011 at the Worlds to 13.05 meters four years later at the Worlds.
