Last day of the 2008 Bejing Paralympics

Posted by Ralph | 2:13 PM

(Beijing, Sept.16th) The Paralympics are almost over, and with one day of competition remaining the current medal count is absolutely staggering. So far the home team Chinese have won an astonishing 207 total medals. They have won more medals than Great Britain and the U.S. combined. 87 gold's, 68 silver's and 52 bronze.

China has earned and deserves all the world's respect for making this the greatest Paralympics in history. With Vancouver coming let's see what Canada can do. I'm sure that Vancouver's quadriplegic mayor Sam Sullivan will play a big part in it's success.
