    AHH yet again another article that makes it seem like people with spinal cord injuries and MS can be in the Special Olympics! Sorry but it really annoys me that the general misconception is that disabled sport is all Special Olympics

    We compete in the PARALYMPICS...not the Special Olympics. That is for individuals with a mental disability.

    These sorts of articles frustrate me too, SHG.
