Wrestling

Excerpts from the USABA (United States) website:
" Wrestling is for every size and shape person, both men and women. It is the most natural sport for the visually impaired because the two competitors must maintain contact with each other throughout the competition.

The sport is performed similarly to "sited" wrestling. The rules for international wrestling competitions have some modifications to render conditions more suitable for the visually impaired.

From the beginning of the competition, contact is established between the two contestants in the standing position by the gentle overlapping of each hand over the hand of the opponent. Although each contestant may subsequently move and change this starting position, as long as there is some type of contact between the two contestants wrestling continues. Once contact is broken the referee will blow the whistle to reestablish it."
