  3. Heard on he radio that they were hoping that this event will really push the various 'modified' sports in the mainstream...

    I've wondered before, but ask now. is there any reason the two olypiads couldn't be merged? Why have two games instead of one 4 to 5 week sporting meet for all?

    Oh, and read the first comment on the article linked. What a tw4t. Apparently ex-forces shouldn't take part.
  4. Chocolate Frog - the feeling is the Paralympians don't want to - they are athletes in their own right, they want their own games and don't want to be be in the same games as BMX and Synchronised Swimming ;-)
