The Paralympics are a global celebration of elite sport for athletes with disabilities - and yet there are no categories for deaf competitors. Seb Cunliffe investigates why deaf athletes are being excluded. Is it because of funding difficulties or are deaf people being held back because of internal politics between various sporting bodies?
First-time reporter Erika Levi is thrown in at the deep end as she gets some waterskiing lessons with the Bluebird Waterski club for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. The club celebrated its 50th birthday in 2015.
And there is a round-up of what has been going on in the deaf community over the last month with Seb Cunliffe and Erika Jones.
