Kurt Fearnley in the 2008 Paralympics
The Paralympics have been going on in China for quite some time now, and they aren't getting a fraction of the publicity the Olympics got. One of the big names in the news is Kurt Fearnley, who is ranked number one in the 1500 meter, the 5000 meter, and the marathon. He has been having some bad luck lately with first being assigned the wrong lane and then being hit from behind during the 1500 meter race yesterday: Kurt Fearnley's Rotten Luck.
Fearnley has sacral agenesis and is Australian. For more, see Athletes with CRS/SA.
