Blind Navy veteren wins Gold in swimming.
Nice to see Pistorius win his main event, a suitable finale.
Too bad i missed most of it.
How in the world is Pistorius allowed to concurrently compete in both the Olympics and Paralympics? That seems rather absurd.
(For full disclosure, I have been against Pistorius being allowed to compete in the Olympics since the very day I heard about his endeavor years ago)
I'm not really crazy about that idea, either.
Why is the US so poor at Paralympics? Lack of funding? It's quite startling really. Even Ukraine and Australia have more gold.
Yeah it doesn't really make sense on the face of it.
