random deafsports thoughts

Jaden Barr (above) is a deaf quarterback, but more likely
functions as a hearing person.  There was no mention of
his deafness nor of his hearing loss on his profile page.

Ashamed of his hearing loss? Just wondering!

elite deaf basketball player

Demi Skinner

she previously played on Australia U-20 national

volleyball tweet

I could not participate with the deaf men’s volleyball national
team just because im “a little hearing” even though that i grew up in
a deaf community, and yet these people with no deaf culture growing up and
couldn’t sign gets to play.

note:
Deaflympics rule is that participants must have a 55 dB or higher
in the better ear. Whoever wrote that tweet does not know that rule.
