Playing Sports With Aputations
Paralympics vs Olympics
Most people when asked don't know very much about or what the Paralympics are. Most only know what the Olympics are and what happens there. For people that don't know what the Paralympics are, they are competitions very similar to the Olympics except the contestants are physically disabled , for example some have wooden legs and others have amputees on there arms or other body parts. The Paralympics are similar to the Olympics, for one they both are competitions where participants compete to see who the best is in that event. Another thing is that to make your country's team you have to try out to make it. Another thing is that they have most of the same sports like track and field, gymnastics, and cross country skiing. The only exception is that some events in the Paralympics are scored differently depending on classes which are based on where the injury is. Also in the Paralympics some sports are modified like ice hockey. Another difference is that in the Paralympics there are no byzantine scoring. Also the media is more focused on the Olympics than the Paralympics. This could be because more countries participant in the Olympics than the Paralympics. Altogether the Paralympics and Olympics and have many similarities and differences.
