Sunday was the fourth day of the Paralympics and the first day that Penn State journalists had to see the competition. (A team from teh University of Georgia covered the opening of the games.) At track and field David Brown won 100m gold and his mother wept tears of joy. A blind fan listened to an audio broadcast of football five-a-side, a Paralympic event in which the only player on the field who can see is the goalie.
