Barney and Other olympians. What dicks. this is not a forum about anything but s Valerie's success, we can all take a leaf from in her determination, self discipline, see criticism and sacrifice to be the best. She stood by being honest and true and accepted defeat initially with dignity and congratulating the opponent for their winning. I agree on the paralympians point but this is for Valerie and well done. I will throw the mother in law for her success!
