Participants in Puppy Bowl

In the annual Puppy Bowl, which is always shown during the
Super Bowl weekend, three puppy participants are deaf!

Buttons, a deaf-blind cocker spaniel

Chance, a deaf dalmatian

Moonshine, a deaf border collie

Three deaf puppies in Puppy Bowl is probably the highest
number of deaf participants ever shown on the show

Figure skater was born deaf

Adam Rippon is one of the participants at the  U.S. Figure Skating Championships

part of the newspaper story said:

He got off to a rough start in life. Before his first birthday he
underwent major ear surgery to correct the severe hearing loss he was born
with.

note:
It is vague. Not sure if major ear surgery meant CI or if it was
a corrective surgery to make him hearing?

At any rate, he functions as a hearing person, but does he still
have a hearing loss or if the hearing loss went away?

1917 Georgia Tech football team

newspaper story today said:

The 1917 champions were an offensive juggernaut, even better
than the Georgia Tech team that the previous season beat
Cumberland College 222–0, the biggest blowout
in college football history. Their backfield featured a
deaf running back, Everett Strupper
