A bit of fun!

Right, let's get one thing straight. I am officially classed as a cripple. You can classify me as paraplegic, tetraplegic or a spastic! They are all correct terms, and I don't mind any of them!

So, on that note, I, and the lads in the pub came up with the alternative Paralympic games.

For example, Wheelchair high board diving. Wheelchair 110 metre hurdles.

Come on, you will not offend me. I could do with a laugh, it's nearly Christmas!!

I was about to say wheelchair pole-vault, but some wise guy beat me to it. Hmmm...

Wheelchair long jump?
Wheelchair beach volleyball?
Wheelchair water polo?

Crutch vault comes to mind. And uns-table tennis.

Slap the twat 10 seconds sprint. Fastest and the most slaps done wins. Extra points for the back of the hand slap.The judge will need to study a photo finish though to get the slaps counted accurately :D

Balance beam? Uneven bars? (Oh, wait, you do that every day at the pub...)

Wheelchair underwater hockey!

(Have you seen how physical and brutal wheelchair rugby is?)

And the legless 50K Walk for all partaking at The Merrie Monk.

Another great laugh - thanks Matey.

Winter sports
chair jumping(extra points for landing right way up and in your wheelchair)
Bobchair down the luge
Snow chairing along a half-pipe
Curling, you can be the stone!
You could fit half tracks in place of the rear wheels on a chair to get about.

Throwing the hammer would both be fun to do and to watch I'd imagine. Especially if you had those supermarket trolley wheels fitted. Other than that - Sidecar Racing?
