I've been watching as much of the para's as I can. Some of the performances have been fantastic. Our telecasts have obviously been concentrating on the Australian performances. A big one was Evan O'Hanlon, the first cerebral palsy runner to break 11 seconds for 100m and 22sec for 200m. The American and Canadian wheelchair basketball teams played an amazing double overtime semi final. The swimming has been amazing. I wish the profile of these sports were bigger. I enjoy watching these sports as much as the able bodied games. And the wheelchair rugby (murderball) is great!
