tragic pursuit of world record

part of newspaper story:

Combs was trying to become the fastest woman in history by breaking the
1976 record of 512.710 mph set by Kitty O’Neil in a vehicle that had only
three wheels.

note:
this refers to Jessi Combs’s death in an accident

Kitty O’Neil, the record-holder, was deaf. In fact she
was a member of the 1965 USA Deaflympics team as a
diver. She knew no ASL, preferring to communicate
orally. Newspapers all over USA made no reference
to her deafness.

random deafsports thoughts

an ignorant baseball tweet

Watching baseball and my mom saw the catcher giving signals
to the pitcher, so she asked me if he’s deaf!
