Deaflympics Update 2

SH Line Producer | 15:59 UK time, Wednesday, 9 September 2009

It's been a bit of a mixed bag in the Deaflympics so far - the biggest shock being that the GB Men's football team, despite winning Gold in Melbourne in 2005, didn't make it out of the group stages. Console yourselves by watching the hearing England Men's inevitable World Cup qualification against Croatia tonight.

GB women, despite being tightened up defensively with the help of our own Memnos, were given a 6-2 spanking by Russia. Here's hoping they can get back to winning ways.

The big success story of the Deaflympics so far though has to be Hannah Fitton. She's won two bronzes in swimming so far, and was in contention for a third medal in the 100m Freestyle. Sadly she finished 7th.

Our UK Deaf Sport mole in Taipei says: "Seriously, Taipei's a cracking place - shame we fly back the day after the closing ceremony; little time to sightsee."

Our heart bleeds for them...
