I can't believe that they acknowledge they even have disabled citizens. At least they would not cheat at the Paralympics would they?

I was reading an article the other day saying that in the USSR days, they pretty much tried to hide their disabled citizens. Only in recent years have they made an effort to work with the disabled community to make things easier for them.

If I can find that article, I'll link it here.

I actually enjoy watching sledge hockey. I have a buddy on the team that sparked my interest a few years back. Had it not been for him I probably never would have known it existed. GO USA!!!

I wouldn't be surprised if Russia crippled some healthy athletes to win medals in Sochi.

Or maybe you'll just have a repeat of 4 years ago when your team lost on home ice after dominating group play.

/I don't really care who wins
//I'm just enjoying watching the games

They're doing visually impaired slalom skiing and it's snowing in Sochi!
 
2014-03-12 02:28:09 AM  
Well of course they're doing visually impaired skiing. look at the fog.

They're going down like it's a bunny hill.

So on Tuesday in curling, Finland murdered the British team 13-4 for the Finns 1st win. Then the USA beat the Fins in the afternoon 7-6.

Right now, the USA leads China 3-0 in the 4th (USA scoring 1 in each end)

Ugh. Was in a Twitch chat, someone is trying to remember a relative that was competing as a monoskier once, named Rene Szalay. IPC records don't show him as ever being a participant, though, and now I'm trying to figure out where exactly he was one. That is not an easily-Googled name.
