Paralympians are invited to apply for the IPC’s PLY status

Paralympians are invited to apply to use the post-nominal letters by completing an online registration form. Following approval from the IPC of the PLY status, Paralympians will be able to use their post-nominative letters and download a certificate of recognition.

PLY can be added alongside the Paralympians’ name on official documentation, social media, cv, business cards or anywhere else their name may be used.

Post-nominal letters, such as PhD or MD, are placed after a person's name to indicate that they hold a position, honour, or is a member of a fraternity. As such, PLY can be added alongside the Paralympians’ name on official documentation, social media, cv, business cards, presentations, email signature or anywhere else their name may be used.

A Paralympian will be eligible to use a PLY designation once their application has been accepted, provided that they are not currently serving a period of ineligibility for an anti-doping rule violation.

 

IPC introduces PLY post-nominal titles to recognise Paralympians

IPC President Andrew Parsons said: “As an athlete-centred organisation, at the IPC we believe it is important to recognise all Para athletes who have devoted years to training and have made huge sacrifices to reach the Paralympic Games, which is the pinnacle sporting event… To be a Paralympian is to be part of an elite club and only around 28,000 people can claim to be a Paralympian… we must always remember those who set us on this path towards greater inclusion for persons with disabilities.”
