    Default Disabled Players

    I don't know which forum i should slot this one into so i put it in here. They sure have unique skills that i don't have.

    i hope they get some indoor training before 2008. With hardwood and mat, that guy should able to jump higher. Grass lawn is kinda soft for launching but good for absorbing impact.

    if you think about how difficult it is for us to play badminton normally, it must take so much more effort when you're disabled. they look like they're having fun though, and exercising which is the most important thing after all.

    Cool Wow...

    ...i can't really describe the right word, but like everyone said, that's truly indeed AMAZING!!! ..

    imagine them jumping & running, let alone how they're able to keep their balance with one leg....(still shaking my head)..
