Is 2 lines in the Herald enough coverage?
If anyone ever wonders why the growth of this sport remains somewhat limited it is because of articles like this. When in the world will a wheelchair based sport, curling or not, get the recognition it so basically deserves no offense to anyone.Is it not about time that wheelchair sport be raised to an equal plateform as that of other sports? Should the accomplishments of those who work no less harderthan other athletes no get a mention on such a great accomplishment more than 2 lines at the bottom of an atricle.
No offense to the writer; it really is not about him. Honestly!!!
It is about what society think is news worthy. How sad is it when a writer is some what forced based on readerships to make only a last second mention. I mean good for him for putting it in but why could the Herald not step up an make this a top of the line article?
The article in the Herald was the last two lines which read:
" . . . Calgary's Bruno Yizek won the Alberta wheelchair title on Saturday in Edmonton to advance to the Canadian wheelchair championship March 18 to 25 in Thunder Bay, Ont."

Well Bruno, We congratulate you once again on not only winning but winning for the 7th straight time!!! I invite everyone to share your comments on this because I think we are very close to the most abysmal placement article on our sport I have seen in a very long time.
