Athletes are set to battle it out for the last remaining places in the rowing events at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games at the final qualifier in Italy this week.

Tokyo 2020 Paralympic berths will be on offer in four categories - PR1 men's and women's single sculls, PR2 mixed double sculls and PR3 mixed coxed four - at the delayed event in Gavirate.

Competition is due to run from tomorrow until Saturday (June 5).

Claudia Cicero dos Santos Sabino of Brazil, who made her last international appearance at the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, is among the athletes chasing a Tokyo 2020 place in the PR1 women's single sculls.

Sweden's Ebba Einarsson will be hoping to bounce back from narrowly missing out on a Paralympic spot at the European qualifier when she competes at the Italian venue.

Poland’s Jaroslaw Kailing, eighth at the 2019 World Rowing Championships, will be one of the favourites in the men's single sculls competition.

Paralympic silver medallist Kathryn Ross of Australia has teamed up with newcomer Simon Albury to pursue a Tokyo 2020 berth in the mixed double sculls at the qualifier, where they could face a challenge from Amalia Sedlmayr and Leopold Reimann of Germany.

Brazil, Canada and Nigeria have been tipped as ones to watch in the mixed coxed four category.

The Final Paralympic Qualification Regatta was pushed back a month by World Rowing in February to allow the event to take place following concerns over athletes travelling to Italy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
