Appreciate it @Sproj. Doesn't get as much coverage as the "main event" but I still like to hear about it.
I skimmed past it, but I thought I saw an article on Facebook today that Scomo has said all the Paralympians that earn a medal will receive the same money as their able bodied athletes?
Yeah there was a bit of an uproar about it because the paralympians weren't in line to get anything but the Olympians got I think $30000 for gold, $20000 for silver and $10000 for bronze or something like that. I think it is great there is recognition financially for the pralympians because to be honest, I actually prefer watching this to the Olympics in many ways, this just seems like the Olympic skateboarding comp all round where everyone just seems to support everyone, I really love it.
