The International Paralympic Committee is limiting soccer to only certain disabilities. The team limits participation to male athletes with cerebral palsy/brain injury/strokes. I have Spina Bifida and have played competitive soccer all my life. Because the disability has worsened over the years, I am no longer able to compete with people who do not have limitations. All I am asking for is the International Paralympic Committee to reconsider this and add spina bifida to the qualifications. The Paralympic Committee should reconsider due to the mass number of people with spina bifida, and the similarities in this disability, and others accepted by the committee as a qualifying disease. We, the undersigned, support the addition of spina bifida to the qualifications of soccer in the Paralympics.
