Not for prime time TV. Too politically incorrect.

Gawd that looks like an artificial limb connected to his shottie. Yea what's the scoop with the coverage? Didn't see any weight lifters, kayakers, shooters and so much more, got lots of volley ball, basketball, running and swimming, I was begging for the good stuff, never got any.

The women's volleyball is GOOD stuff!
The only shooting sports they show are archery and air-rifles.

Well done to the shooter.

We have a couple of shooters in our clays club who have stocks like that...they sure do look weird, but they allow for a perfect fit and almost zero perceived recoil.

They had quite good coverage of air rifle and a good in depth interview of one of the Aussie shooters. A shooter is a shooter, regardless of his firearm of choice...can only be good for the shooting sports.

Cheers, Vince

They keep looking for every advantage they can get no matter how small. Seems there is still money to drive innovation.

Can't grizzle about Olympics coverage - we got shooting , clays etc but at ungodly hours of early morning 3 - 4 am etc.
What pisses me off is theres None, Nada, nil of the Paralympics, WTF, are they any less athletes? I think not. I know the NZ paralympic Rower Danny McBride and he puts as much effort as all the able bodied rowers ... he rows out of the High Preformance center like everyone else.

At least you can use the internet to stay up with the action. I saw some of it while staying in Ireland the last couple weeks.

We have had a terrific coverage of the Paraolympics here...albeit the sports with Aussies competing.

I reckon the para Olympians train harder and longer that the able bodied athletes...they have to to achieve at the level they are. I saw a Chinese swimmer the other night swim a 50 metre lap in under 28 seconds...and this guy had only one arm fer chissakes. No way in the world I could do that with two good arms and legs. Watching the wheelchair basketball and wheelchair rugby...thems guys is tough...and the Goal Ball (that's what they called it I think) is incredible. Imagine how hard it would be to play a team sport with no vision at all.

Goalball

How about a guy shooting Archery with NO arms and he wins the silver medal.
