Deaf LSU Swimmer Trains For Summer Olympics

LSU swimmer and Deaf record holder, Matthew Klotz, hopes to represent
Hungary in the 2020 Summer Olympics.

Klotz is a dual citizen in America and Hungary, and he hopes to one day
soon swim for his home country.

Klotz is very different than other athletes on the LSU swim team. He is
Deaf and uses hearing aids but actually sees this as an advantage.

He holds 16 metals under his belt from Deaf and American Competitions, and
he is well recognized in the swimming community.

Klotz is currently working on switching his citizenship to make it
possible for him to swim and represent Hungary.

A fact wrong about Dummy Hoy?

from Ripley’s Believe it or Not

Make no mistake, William Hoy represented a true baseball legend playing
for the Cincinnati Reds and a handful of other teams from 1888 to 1902.
All told, he boasted an average of .288 and played in 1,797 games. He
claimed 2,048 hits, 40 homers, 1,429 runs, 725 bats in, and 274 assists.
He did great things for baseball.

He also helped change American perceptions about the aurally and vocally
challenged. You see, Hoy was completely deaf and mute having contracted
meningitis at the age of three. Yet, his disabilities never stopped him
from rocking the majors. So, it stands to reason that he invented the hand
signals used in baseball, right?

Wrong! While Hoy used hand signals, they came from his coaches and other
teammates and were gaining currency in ballparks across the US. Why?
Because the noisy din of baseball crowds made it difficult for umpires,
coaches, and teammates to communicate. Two years after Hoy’s retirement,
the larger-than-life umpire, Bill Klem, made them standard practice.

random deafsports thoughts

A school complained that their athletic results are never printed
in DeafDigest Sports. That school, for the past 10 years or so
has never sent in their results to DeafDigest Sports.

The DeafDigest Sports response was this:
just send me your sports results and it will be printed!

that simple? Yes!
