This article is part of a ParaSport News series of articles looking at athletics world records and world records progression.
T40 and T41 are two relatively new athletics classes for people with short stature. The definitions for T41 were changed a lot following the 2012 Summer Paralympics, making the class for women with short stature over the age of 17 who are between 125 cm (49 inches) and 140 cm (55 inches).
At the present, the class is rather empty with the IPC having only one world record listed. That one is in the discus, and was set by Tunisia’s Raoua Tlili with a throw of 29.7 meters at last year’s IPC Athletics World Championships in Doha, Qatar.
