The managers eventually fell the jacket to live the two situations of handicap corresponding to the two major classifications existing in wheelchair table tennis: standing (with weights weighting and / or splints) and sitting (in a multisport wheelchair ). The more adventurous took their courage in both hands to face the champion in his discipline, in vain.
