Opened a thread for the Paralympics

Iran took 79 athletes and ranked 11th in 2012 with 10 gold, 7 silver, 7 bronze.

This time there are 93 competitors! With 9 more competitors in athletics, it should be a good tally for Iran. Let's see if Iran can break into the top 10 this time!

I think they are all deaf..
well even a small disorder in vision is considered as handicap, the guy who won silver yesterday for Iran had this issue, so base on that and degree of gravity of handicap i don't know if it is a fair competition or not which can disadvantage some athletes.
