Deaflympics - so long and thanks for all the medals

SH Line Producer | 11:35 UK time, Tuesday, 15 September 2009

The fat lady has signed her last song, the last medal's been awarded, and the 2009 Deaflympics are OVER.

It wasn't a great Deaflympics for Great Britain, especially not compared to Melbourne 2005, and definitely not compared to Russia, who topped the medals table this time round. 

But we've still had our fair share of success stories. A big shout out to Cathy Graham, Rajeev Bagga, Lauren Peffers and Hannah Fitton for their success in their respective sports.

Things we've learned:

- The German team did a victory conga at their hotel every night
- The Swedish Women's football team were very attractive
- The 8 athletes who were thrown out for not being 'deaf enough' were allegedly from Chinese Taipei, and members of the waterpolo team

That's all, folks.
