A legally blind archer has already won gold.
Anybody watching the Opening Ceremonies tonight?
yes, but not sure how long I can stay awake..
Tape delay I suppose?
This morning someone pointed out to me that I know Claire Donahue's sister and brother in law. Had no idea of the connection.
A swimmer. I forget what she is racing. Still pretty cool.
Wow, didn't see that one coming.
no offense to legally blind people, but if anyone can win a gold being legally blind then it shouldn't be an olympic sport.
I'm sure a swimmer could be legally blind and have a shot. A legally blind shot putter would stand a pretty good chance.
I think I draw the line at what should be considered an Olympic quality competition when there are ribbons involved.
Could the guy not be legally blind in one eye. If its the non-dominant aiming eye - then I don't think it would make a difference.

10% vision in left eye, 20% in right eye.
Excuse me, didn't win gold, just set world record, and broke his own record.

Am I the only one bored to death so far from the opening ceremony?
It is pretty British I must admit. The best part was the kids' singing and Meredith decides to talk over them the whole time.
Twitter folks... follow the #openingceremonies
Hours of hilarity.
I would love to hear Bob Kesling try to call out these countries as they walk into the stadium
Parade of Nations is so cool.
I see Kiribati's three athletes in the parade. Quick personal note; when I was in the Peace Corps, I actually worked with the Kiribati track and basketball teams. Basketball is nowhere near the Olympics, but they've had some track guys in the Olympics. Of course, they're comparable to very good high school runners in America, but it was still kind of cool.
