Goalball: A Sport for the Blind


Goalball, July 15, 2011. Germany vs Japan. Players are either blind or partially blind, and all wear blindfolds to ensure they’re only playing with their sense of hearing and sense of touch. 3 players to a side guarding a 9m (29.5ft) wide goal from a 1.25kg (2.75lb) bell-filled ball that can be hurled at over 80kph (50mph).
