    It seems an Australian Paralympian has massively exaggerated her condition to switch from an intellectual category to a physical category despite her ex coach being adamant she had no physical condition.
    She was seen walking with a limp at the games in 2016 but had been videod since with no such condition.

    I would like to make a joke about the cricket team but I’m pretty sure this sort of thing goes on all the time at these games.
    It will be sad because isnthis becomes a major scandal down the line as the games will be finished for everyone.

    Did she because the report seems pretty damming as if her mother was looking for something that wasn’t there.

    sorry but that was just a quote from a Monty Python movie, attempt at humour which went straight through to the keeper

    Damn I feel bad for still not getting the reference, I really need to go back and watch some python again seemingly.

    Maybe she identifies as disabled? If so, who are we to judge?

    After all, we have transsexuals identifying as women allowed to compete and take medals in female sports at the Olympics.
