WASHINGTON – The Gallaudet University men’s soccer program officially

top ranked table tennis player

Jerome Blanchette, deaf and just 17 years old is a
top notch table tennis player.

He has been ranked 45th best player in the Quebec
province.

Opponents have said it is amazing since they say
one has to hear to know where the ball is and
where the ball bounces.

…………………………………………….

bare-knuckles boxing

Bare-knuckles boxing has come back in USA, at least
in Wyoming.

There was a deaf bare-knuckles boxing champion in
Great Britain.

It was James Burke, who won the British championship
in 1833.

He has a bitter life and died a young man at age of
35.

Bare-knuckles means boxing without gloves or special
padded gloves.

random deafsports thoughts

Deaf Sports research was a project of DeafDigest Sports
years ago. He would go through old editions of deaf
publications to make notes of these past, elite
deaf athletes as well as of amazing deaf athletic
feats.

Anyway, it was discovered that during the 1920′s
and 1930′s there were many, many deaf boxers.
All them were small-time pros, picking up pocket
money fighting at boxing clubs and small boxing
arenas.

Possibly because of the Depression when deaf people
could not find jobs, boxing was a way for them
to pick up small money.
