The Paralympics, an event organized to allow those suffering from disabilities to compete for Olympic gold, is being rocked by claims that a “mind-blowing” number of its participants are faking the severity of their injuries.

Now, a call for sweeping reforms is being made by former International Paralympic Committee (IPC) officials.

Xavier Gonzalez, who helmed the IPC for 15 years between 2004 and 2019, cites evidence brought forth from several former athletes who tell of widespread cheating in the organization, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reports. Specifically, Gonzalez claims that athletes would exaggerate their disabilities to gain entry to events they would otherwise not qualify to participate in.
