Current Paralympics medals table. China's total is very impressive. Russia was banned completely from the Paralympics;

aww, that's so great. :)




I wonder if Texas was a country how many medals we'd have.

More Golds than Germany and Russia combined apparently. And half the US total medals.

All hail the mighty State!

Hey Sandy, who would have thought my study partner and new best friend would come from these Olympics with a gold medal, eh :)

Such a fun happenstance!

You know, statistically speaking, the odds of you having a gold medal winning study partner and new best friend is astronomically higher than me. Did anyone from Utah win any medal whatsoever? :)  (We're kind of a winter sport place. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!)

Somewhere there is a web page for every question!
I might remember it all differently tomorrow.
