About Track & Field
American deaf athletes have been winning medals at the Deaflympics since 1935. Through the years, US athletes have broken countless national and world records and set new ones that still stand.
The USA Deaf Track and Field (USADTF) was established in 1986 to provide a central governing body for the nation’s multitude of deaf track and field athletes. Through elite summer clinics and local, regional and national competitions, the USADTF has bolstered the level of competition to where the USA is among the strongest contenders of the global Deaf Athletics community
