Conditions of Entry:
The Transplant Games of America is a festival-style event with medaling competition, open to recipients of life-supporting allografts (heart, intestine, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas) corneal, bone marrow, and tissue transplants.
Recipients must have been transplanted for at least nine months, with stable graft function, be medically fit and have trained at the events in which they have registered. All competitors must be medically approved by their physician to compete. There are two divisions of competitors. Division I consist of solid organ recipients, and Division II consist of living donors, corneal, tissue, and bone marrow recipients. There are some sport restriction for Division II athletes and interested candidates should refer to each specific sport for clarification. International athletes are welcome to compete but will earn duplicate medals in an international division.
