Thanks. Wish I'd seen them. They don't seem to have had anywhere near the publicity of the men. Fantastic win by Oscar tonight!
I mean I saw it on the tv btw, not lucky enough to get tickets!
Yes I saw the women's 100m which was won by a dutch athlete nicknamed 'the blade babe'www.paralympic.org/video/marlou-van-rhijn-aka-blade-babe-wins-gold-100m-t44-and-teammates-take-silver-and-bronze
Yes you've missed it, there were some, maybe not as many though.
I think there were races at the beginning of the week.The Canadian-turned-British runner, Stef somebody, who went on to get silver in the Long Jump, for example.
Have I missed it, or do they not have track races for women amputees using blades? And if not, does anyone know why? I've seen plenty of female wheelchair races, but no Oscar or Johnny equivalents....
