I don't like sports, but even I have to pay some attention to the Games. I do love to watch gymnastics, though, which is what brought this thread to mind. It's a place to post about extraordinary things that you might find during the Games, rather than just the expected athletic excellence. It's not restricted to athletes. If there's something special about a coach, or a competitor's parents, or whatever... this is the place. I'll start with the 2 that really blew me away and prompted this. (Please forgive my lack of remembering names.) An Irish lad who was told just a couple of years ago that he would never walk again competed in the floor gymnastics yesterday. It didn't go as well as he'd hoped, but as he said in the post-performance interview, "At least I'm not in a wheelchair like they said I'd be." (That's not an exact quote, but as close to it as I can remember.) The other is a young Chinese archer. He's legally blind, and still managed to set a world record. I'm missing some details on that, having heard it just in passing on the news, but I think that it has something to do with the number of arrows on target. If anything extra special like that comes to your attention, please share. And no, Arildno! Bad Arildno! Sit! Balancing a frozen halibut on your nose doesn't count.
