New Zealand's multi-Paralympic and world champion Sophie Pascoe has been shortlisted for the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Athlete of the Month award for May.
Pascoe impressed at the Para-swimming World Series event in Singapore last month, earning four gold medals and setting three world records on the way.
She is joined on the shortlist by Italy's Carolina Costa, winner of the gold medal in the over-70 kilograms event at the season-opening International Blind Sports Association Judo Grand Prix in Baku.
Costa had triumphed against the reigning world champion Hongyu Wang of China to do so.
United States' Para-ice hockey player Declan Farmer has been nominated for his performance in the final of the World Championships in Ostrava.
He had scored the game-tying goal that forced overtime against Canada before passing the puck to team-mate Brody Roybal for the winner in a 3-2 victory.
Jetze Plat of The Netherlands took double gold in the men's H4 category at the Para-cycling Road World Cup in Ostend to be put up for the award.
Koji Sugeno makes up the list after leading Japan to their first World Team Cup wheelchair tennis quad title against Israel in Ramat HaSharon.
The nominations are compiled from submissions by National Paralympic Committees and International Federations.
An online public vote is due to decide the winner until June 13.
Australian London Marathon world record breaker Michael Roeger won last month's award.
