Top Ten Paralympic Wheelchair Sports that Would Be Bizarre to Watch

I really love the Paralympic Games - perhaps even more than the Olympics. The athletes competing in these games aren't called "Superhuman" without reason.
This list came about after a discussion with a wheelchair-bound friend of mine who suggested it would be so strange (and a bit humorous) to be included in the Paralympic Games.
Just to confirm; I know wheelchair users swim and are included in the Equestrian sports, but not with the actual wheelchair. This list is about sports that would look bizarre when the actual wheelchair is included....

We have a name for that. It's called pushing disabled people off a cliff. Something to please the human rights activists. - PositronWildhawk
