Material and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted with 41 subjects (93%) of the classified to the Para-Panamerican Games Toronto 2015, who practiced table tennis (n=6), football 5 (n=11), swimming (n=8), rugby (n=7), powerlifting (n=6) and wheelchair tennis (n=3). The body composition and somatotype were assessed through the protocol described by the International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK). Results: The CEPA reach an average for that classifies somatotype mostly as meso-endomorphic (5.3-7.8-0.5), a BMI of 27.4 kg/m2, and body composition for fat mass reaches 29.8% in women and 25.7% in men, while muscle mass gain 42.6% (women) and 44.5% (men).
