The inclusive games

I caught a bit of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony and was pleased to see that there are fully integrated events for Elite Athletes with a Disability (EAD).

I’d really like to see this mirrored at larger events like the Olympics. Aside from the obvious “it’s the right thing to do”, I think that it would dramatically increase funding for EAD sports in many countries. Especially if there are EAD events that could potentially win these countries medals.

Is this all wishful thinking?
