On January 23-26, 2012, Russ Myer attended the International Paralympic Nordic World Cup in Cable, WI, to participate in a classifier conference. Russ and James Wallace, DPT from Sitrin Rehabilitation Center in New Hartford, NY, will serve as technical and medical classifiers for US Paralympic Nordic. Classifiers
evaluate the medical and performance components of XC and Biathlon to more
accurately group visually impaired, standing disabled and spnal cord injured athletes into ability similar categories.
Russ and James hope to attend an international classifier conference next year in
either Finland or Norway.
