Hi guys

did anyone see the write up in runners world was happy to see a few blind runners in the marathon but i noticed they didnt list the women.

does anyone know if the paraolympic marathon will be televised. these guys times are amazing knowing how hard it can be to train vision impaired i really admire the dedication not only of the athletes but their helpers as well

I haven't seen this months runners world mag, but I think I will go buy now... That sounds amazing...

I am pretty sure that the paraolympics is screened, but not sure how much of it is. I'm sure someone will know Staypuff.

Hi Staypuff
Here is the Paralympic Committee site and here is the 2008 Paralympic site.
Cheers
SJ
edit - can't find much there about running although there is this article about a blind runner and his guide, but I imagine you have more than likely seen it. I included the link to it in case you hadn't.
