The 23rd Deaflympics have just finished in Samsun Turkey. It is one thing having no Government Support in Britain or Australia but to deny the Deaf world adding lympics to Deaf in scrabble is a dire injustice.

The Deaflympics have just handed out 100's of medals all bearing a word that does not appear in the OED. Should Athletes return the medals for re-engraving.

Seriously The IOC approved Deaflympics are the second oldest multi sport games (started in 1924), the OED include Paralympics which is great but have failed to include the word Deaflympics...Please support our Deaf Athletes around the World and sign the petition.
