i watch it and "pretended" its the real olympics then cry myself to sleep afterwards.

god dame i miss the olympics..

no offense to the paralymics and good on them for competiting, but its absolutely a borefest to watch..

i find it funny that there chef de mission ONLY brings athletes who have a GOOD chance of medaling..

we should be like that in the Normal Olympics....Paralympics should be about participation

Gutted for the poor lady who got a blow out moccasin in the sprints....

Mayb thats why they dont show us lots of coverage... but am getting f**ked off withthem shoing the accidents over and over again.

These people need to be shown for their acheivements not their disasters. To have come as far as they hacve to even compete must be gut wrenching to have it all collapse so close to being on top.

Notice this thread not getting as much interest as the "normal" olympicks

"A highlight of the swimming has been China's Fuying Jiang, born without arms, doing butterfly by swooping down the pool like a dolphin.
She blew the roof off the jam-packed Water Cube when she led the 200m individual medley - only to be mowed down centimetres from the wall by an American dwarf who had been lifted up on to the blocks for the start. Quite a sight."
