Fresh off Deaflympics win, golfer brings fight to the PHC Classic

GLENDALE — Kaylin Yost couldn’t hear the two words last week. She could
hardly hear anything.

Well, until the roar.

In Samsun, Turkey, at the first-ever golf event in the 23rd Deaflympics
— an International Olympic Committee-sanctioned event at which deaf
athletes compete at an elite level — Yost wasn’t permitted to use the
hearing aids she’s worn since doctors noticed her hearing impairment at
age 2. She could hear loud noises but nothing more, so when the fan yelled
the two words — “miss it” — as she stood over gold medal-granting
putt, Yost went about her business.

Dubai Deaflympics

Dubai is ICSD president’s favorite to host Deaflympics 2021

LONDON: Dubai is the personal preference of the president of the
International Committee of Sports for the Deaf (ICSD), Valery Rukhledev,
to stage the 2021 Deaflympics, ahead of the newly-announced 2028 Olympic
Games host city of Los Angeles.

note:
in other words, the president, and not the delegates “decide” where the
next Deaflympics take place. A dictatorship? Probably so.
