Goalball



One of the different games for the Paralympics is Goalball. Played by by the blind or those losing their sight, there are three on each team. The object is for one team to roll the ball with a bell inside into the other goal. This is Team GB defending against Brasil, a hard fought match won by GB. And if you think this is incredible, you should see a penalty being taken. And saved.

Diamond Geezer covered Goalball yesterday if you want to read more, a few more photos showing a play are here.
