Deaf World Cup - Russia

So apparently there's going to be the first deaf worldcup snowboarding event to be hosted by Russia.

Click on this Link for more information.

I don't know. I may or may not go. It'll mean I'll have to fundraise again. I've already given all donation money back to the people who've donated in support of me going to the 2012 Deaflympics.  

We'll see..

Ruda has been arrested!

this news basically says that Ruda has been accused of creating fake documents and has stolen 11 millon dollars that should have been invested in building the venues for the winter Deaflympics. He was caught trying to leave Slovakia after being told he was not allowed to leave the country and was arrested. http://www.h3.tv/deaflympics-slovakia-2011/ruda-is-accused-fraud/ (in international sign language with transcript)



and watch this funny segment of the news reporter in Slovakia making fun of ICSD for overlooking the major red flags. http://www.h3.tv/deaflympics-slovakia-2011/world-by-mr-hudak/ (has captioning in English)

Deaflympics Cancellation

As most of you has already heard, Deaflympics has been cancelled as of yesterday just 5 days before it was supposed to happen. This came as a HUGE blow and a shock to the deaf community worldwide.

I don't know what my next plan of action will be. I am supposed to be in Washington DC right now to prepare for the flight to Slovakia, but for now I will stay in Colorado and wait for the dust to settle down.

Here are the links with all the news I've been coming across since I discovered the news yesterday morning. I only know as much as you do at this point.

As you can see, there's a lot of commotion going on right now. I'm just surprised it's revealed this late in the game, and that all the red flags were not detected earlier on by the ICSD (International Committee of Sports for the Deaf)??
