Re: Paralympics thread

has anyone seen mens 50m backstroke ? the first two finishers (China and S.Korea) brought almost 10 sec on the rest of the field and they looked like pro swimmers. not implying anything though.

Re: Paralympics thread

But Iranian men's sitting volleyball seems very strong, CCTV-5 will soon show the final between Iran and Bosnia/Herzegov.
