I have been dreaming about the day the Paralympics would become more popular than the Olympics because of advance technologies that would help handicapped human cyborgs to perform better than non-handicapped non-cyborg/biological humans. But now, it seems Cybathlon will take the lead in this area. I'm looking forward to watch this awesome competition!

I was hoping that the "Powered Wheelchair Race" category would turn out to be Formula One.
