Sportissimo, an Italian supplier of track and field equipment, has teamed up with the World Para Athletics division of the International Paralympic Committee.
The five-figure deal will run until at least the end of 2018. Under the partnership, the company has become the first supplier to World Para Athletics.
Sportissimo will supply Para athletics-specific equipment, devices and accessories to local organising committees of World Para Athletics events, including world and regional championships, and grand prix events.
The two organisations will also work together on developing new products.
“In addition to providing a pool of equipment free of charge to local organising committees of World Para Athletics events, as well as at cost rental and purchase offerings, we will work with Sportissimo to develop a number of new Para sport products,” IPC summer sports director Ryan Montgomery said.
Sportissimo is the first official supplier of World Para Athletics and joins Asics and Allianz, which are both official partners.
