watching World Cup Russia vs Saudi Arabia, nightmare
for deaf color-blind fans

There have been complaints that color-blind fans,
both deaf and hearing, could not follow the
action in the Russia vs Saudi Arabia World
Cup soccer match.

The Russian team wore red jerseys; the Saudia Arabian
team wore green jerseys. It was impossible for
these color-blind fans to follow which team
had the ball. Hopefully these deaf fans could
watch the sign language videos to follow the
game action!

deaf steer wrestler in rodeo

Clint Thomas is still competing professionally
in rodeo. He comes from Georgia which is not
exactly a hotbed of rodeo.

According to the latest rodeo event at
Blythewood, South Carolina earlier this
month in steer wrestling:

Steer Wrestling: Justin Thigpen 4.7 $486.45;
Clint Thomas 4.8 $341.55; Cord Spradley 4.9
$207.00

deaf member of college women’s rowing team

Kelin McCloskey

junior

Washington College (Maryland – NCAA-III)

women’s rowing team

her profile:
2016-17: Stroked the second varsity eight, which competed at NCAA Division
III Championships and won at MARC Championships.

2015-16: Was in the seven seat of the Shorewomen’s second varsity eight
which won at the Mid-Atlantic Rowing Conference Championships and competed
at the NCAA Division III Championships.

this season:
2017-18: Was in the four seat of the MARC Championship-winning first
varsity eight, which also competed at NCAA Division III Championship and
Dad Vail and won at Kerr Cup.

note:
judging by her performances, she was promoted from second varsity
to first varsity for this season. Obviously she is a valued
member, ready to compete in the 2018-19 season, her final season.

bending the rules in British deaf soccer

it is a rule everywhere that participants in Deaflympics,
World Championships and international contests that they
cannot wear hearing aids or CI’s.

In Great Britain, the deaf can wear hearing aids or
CI’s during Disability Cup competitions!

Not sure exactly what is this supposed to mean – Disability
Cup – too broad a definition.

random deafsports thoughts

Thinking about Clint Thomas, a long time rodeo
pro from Georgia, who is deaf and a graduate
of Georgia School for the Deaf, was there
such a thing as national Deaf Rodeo competition?

There was – at one time – consisting of deaf
rodeo contestants from southwestern states.

It was just one time only, much to the disappointent
of these deaf participants.

Reason?

Insurance is costly and no one could afford it.

Injuries in rodeo, especially for these amateur
participants, is too common.
