South Korea’s hearing-impaired NextGenATP player on steep learning curve

For former junior World No. 3, Duckhee Lee, this is only compounded having
been born deaf. The NextGenATP South Korean can hear vibrations, but must
rely on hand gestures from the umpire and line judges.

college deaf kicker

Unable to hear clearly on the field, this college kicker uses his other senses to succeed

William Holmquist can’t hear his teammates calling out signals. He
can’t hear his coaches shouting instructions from the sidelines, and he
can’t hear what the screaming crowd surrounding him is yelling while
he’s on the football field.

When he punted for Tufts, the play clock – not the snap count –
dictated everything his special teams unit did. Holmquist, who was born
almost deaf, only knew the ball would be snapped when the clock hit a
predetermined time.

interesting comment copied from a blog

We also need the approval of the state government to host the sixth
edition of the National Football Championship for the Deaf, scheduled to
hold next year.

The nation is Nigeria, of course, not USA!
