    Not sure but I doubt they’ll let you in the paralympics if you’re half deaf.

    Maybe Russians can chim in and tell us.

    DC said in comms he was like 40% one side and 70% other. i don't know if that's how much he's lost or how much he can hear but i guess works out about half deaf either way

    How does that shit work with the paralympics. Like if you’re deaf can you compete against anyone with a disability in their chosen sport or is there a special deaf competition for only deaf people ?

    If the latter, wouldn’t there be an excessive amount of competitions due to the large amount of disabilities?

    You gotta have disability and meet certain conditions, such as passing qualification rounds or qualifying by time standards.

    Obviously 100m race is not gonna win person in wheelchair.

    Presume you're assuming Fig gets by Moreno in a rematch? Otherwise no Moreno should absolutely get a rematch before Askar gets a title shot.

    His deafness gives him an advantage. He is literally Daredevil but deaf instead of blind
