Register for PLY

Dear Athlete,

We are excited to offer you an opportunity to register for post-nominal letters (PLY) to honour you for all your commitment, dedication and hard work towards the Paralympic Movement.

Post-nominal letters are placed after a person's name to indicate that they hold a position, honour, or is a member of a fraternity. Like with other post nominal letters e.g. PHD, PLY can be used alongside your name, on social media, cv, business cards, presentations, email signature, etc. In summary, PLY can be used anywhere you use your name.

Please complete the registration form below personally. If you require support with the process, please ensure that you are involved in the registration process to understand the IPC Code of Conduct and IPC’s Privacy Policy.

The results data of the IPC Historical Results Archive is based on information contained/ sourced in the original hardcopy final results publications. Some information from earlier Paralympic Games (i.e. 1960-1988) such as relay and team members are not presented in these source. Therefore, final results, medal standings and derived statistics may not be complete. If you encounter any inaccuracies or errors, please do not hesitate to send a message to sdmsadmin[at]paralympic[dot]org with the details and proving materials.

Important note on the definition of participants: Only athletes that appear in the official results books in the section of final results are included in the database and counted towards participant statistics. Data since 2014 are accurate. Statistics for previous Games editions are under review.

Important note on competition partners: Competition partners eligible for medals are included in the combined participant statistics until 2000 (concerning pilots in tandem cycling). Statistics for 2008 and beyond consider athletes with an impairment and their competition partners separately.
