I know I get to see PARA swimmers on a regular basis and it still amazes me. I'll get to see some of the best in Toronto in a couple of weeks at the CAN AM swim meet as an official.

I would probably qualify--when I use a kickboard in the pool I don't go anywhere--functionally paraplegic.

My son does the same on his back when the CP kicks in when he gets tired.  The secret here is Ballerina toes.  Relax the feet and extend them like a Ballerina as you kick.  Second the kick comes for the hip and not the knee.

 

BTW, unless you have a real disability you don't want to be checked as it is really invasive as to how they test you :eek.
