    The coverage is already starting to sound a bit patronising.

    "Look at him, he's having a great time!"

    My pal made me crack up, he said they did a hologram of Freddie Mercury for the proper one, surely they couldve done a hologram Joey Deacon for the paralympics

    And that's what they said about the Olympians, isn't it? Describing the athletes obvious excitement about the tournament. I guess the comment depends on the context and how it was said but too much can be otherwise read in to innocent comments.

    Right I'm notorious for getting lyrics wrong but are they seriously shouting "Spasticus, Spasticus, Spasticus Artisticus!" :eek:

    Or it might just be the world's largest condescending applause festival.

    Seriously though, don't you find the whole "Aren't they so brave/courageous/special/etc?" a little condescending?

    I'm pretty sure most people who'd qualify to enter want to be treated equally to everyone else. In which case they're competing in a slightly less interesting version of the only very mildly entertaining Olympics. I find the whole "oh, I'm so proud of that little wheelchair one" epidemic nauseating.
