As I'm currently in the US, I'm surprised by how little media coverage the Paralympics are receiving! I'm also surprised by how well Team GB are doing. \o/

 

Anyone keeping up to date with it? :)

Unfortunately, people in the US don't care much about it, though I doubt people would outright admit to that.  If it was readily available to watch, I would be but its not on tv.

No. 22 in the Aussie Wheelchair Rugby Team is a friend of mine! They've already beaten those pesky Poms, and Rio. Sky's the limit! xD

I don't follow the Paralympics too closely, so I'm a bit surprised that China is doing so well.

I heard a dude died after crashing and breaking his neck. It's pathetic how little coverage the Paralympics is getting (at least in Australia).

It was on 7Two, mostly live, Aurelius xD

 

I only saw the opening of the olympics, but it seemed comparable

 

Except the olympics didn't have a guy with no arms playing guitar, or wheelchair gymnasts...just ****ing amazing stuff xD
