 I also agree.
Most Paralympians have already triumphed over huge hurdles, emotional and physical.  Champagne
And then to devote their time to being the best athlete that they can be often means financial sacrifice.
They are heroes and winners no matter who appears on the dais.
I hope the Para Olympics is well supported.  Jumping

Judge Richard Wilson set bail at £500 for each defendant and imposed a surety of £5,000 on each man.
The two powerlifters and their coach will appear in court again on 18 October.
Coleraine Magistrates' Court was told the Jordanian government has given assurances that the accused would return to Northern Ireland for trial if they were released on bail.

I hope they do not compete now, it would not be appropriate at all.

I realize even royals have restrictions on what or how many events they can attend, but I am going to put check marks beside those who attend the Paralympics.

And bonus check marks for those who attend who have patronages which include physical handicaps.

I'm torn, on the one hand they are accused of an awful crime but then the cornerstone of our justice system is innocent until proven guilty.

They WILL be allowed to take part, because if they don't it will have a huge a embrrassement to the State of Jordan. The King Of Jordan has said he will guarantee that if they were granted bail they will turn up for the case!!!! When it reaches court.

I just read that they will be competing. Ultimately I think it's probably the correct decision (!) but I have no doubt the crowd will let them know how they feel about the situation.

Three members of the Jordanian Paralympic squad charged with sex offences in Northern Ireland will not be taking part in the Games, organisers have confirmed.


The three are due to appear in court again on 18 October
London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games said the Jordanian Paralympic Committee had withdrawn the men from their team for London 2012.
The three, who appeared in court yesterday accused of committing a string of offences while in pre-Games training in Antrim, are returning to Jordan.
"We have been informed by the Jordanian National Paralympic Committee that they will not be entering the athletes in question into the London 2012 Paralympic Games," said a LOCOG spokewoman.
"The athletes have returned to Jordan."
Yesterday Coleraine Magistrates' Court was told the King of Jordan had given assurances that the accused would return to Northern Ireland for trial if they were released on bail.
The men are due back in court on 18 October.
Powerlifter Omar Sami Qaradhi, 31, has been charged with three counts of sexual assault, two of them against children, and one count of voyeurism.
His fellow powerlifter Motaz Al-Junaidi, 45, faces one charge of sexual assault against a woman.
Trainer Faisal Hammash, 35, has been charged with two counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity.

Even tho they are alleged to have committed those crimes, I still feel it's wrong to allow them access to vulneralble people.
Casta Semenya had to withdraw from competition because there were doubts about her gender( a private matter).This  is a much more serious matter and it  should be taken seriously.
