Great story, i was going to submit this friday, but was not worthy of Zanardi!

Subby still sounds butthurt because his hero was revealed to be a cheating, lying, sack of sh*t.

I'm just glad that someone got round to greenlighting a link to the Paralympics.

They've been on for eleven days and I think this is the first link I've seen.

The games have been absolutely brilliant. The athletes have been exceptional and have been thrilling to watch and hearing some of the back stories about how they have overcome their adversity has been inspiring.

I liked 'Murderball' (wheelchair rugby) it is brutal. The blade-running and swimming were most exciting too.

If you missed the opening ceremony check

Hopefully tonight's closing ceremony will be just as good.

All of the events have been great from the athletics to swimming, archery, football, cycling and the others. The blind football was amazing and the noise from the crowds has been deafening. One of the best moments was in the t44 100m final with the crowd going bananas Johnny Peacock turned to the crowd, put his finger to his lips and the place went silent. One man had 80,000 people in the palm go his hand.

Movistar did very well. It was also nice to see Argos-Shimano and John Degenkolb win 5 stages. I also think Orica Greenedge showed some strong mettle. I look forward to next years Giro, Tour and Vuelta already!

I dunno. You sound more like the douche in this case.

Also, good to see Zanardi keep the competitive spirit alive. Thumbs up.

/great for Zinardi (sp)

It was on TV in most places, for those of us in the US just had to watch it online, but the online streaming was awesome

It was on all day every day. Over multiple channels. C4 wasn't quite up to the BBC but was much better than i heard NBC did with the Olympics.

This was on every add break on the 3rd most viewed TV network in Britain.

Check out the C4 Paralympics youtube channel.

Zanardi had both legs amputated following during a near-fatal Champ Car accident at Germany's Lausitzring.

There are pics on the internets of the exact moment of impact. It was pretty farking gruesome.

Ahh, I wasn't sure if there was any coverage anywhere, there were no links on Fark that I saw, so wondered if it was a case of 'who want's to watch retards and cripples'

Well I'm glad that I did. Absolutely amazing. Truly an inspiration.

Just finishing off the Closing Ceremony, they've done all the official handing over to Brazil thing, and what's with all the Coldplay hate? They had Rihanna and Jay Z, worked well as far as I'm concerned.

Looking forward to Brazil.

Just wondering how I'm going to spend my time now that the Olympics are over.

Guess it's going to have to be Grand Prix and Championship Football. Although the Tour de Britain is on atm ... hmmm

Good for Alex, he was my favorite CART driver until the accident.

They are ALL using, and anyone who doubts it has their head up their ass.

Also, Serena Williams is drinking testosterone for breakfast. Farking bunch of ostriches letting this sh*t slide...

I loved Zanardi's comments after the race when he said he's had far more opportunities than he could ever deserve. It's awesome seeing someone appreciating things that way.

The current TdF champ would of had trouble getting into the top ten when Armstrong and Ulrich were at their "best". That shows how good the drug testing is at the moment. Cycling is the only sport that has had the times get slower over the years.
