Top Ten Paralympic Wheelchair Sports that Would Be Bizarre to Watch

Britgirl
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....

Maybe a James Bond cannon would make this easier to accomplish, and more amusing to watch. But then, it's not so much the effort of the guy in the chair. - PositronWildhawk

4 Wheelchair Gymnastics
5 Wheelchair Equestrian
6 Wheelchair Hockey

I dunno. That chunka hard rubber come flyin' at ya, you pretty much pucked, son.

7 Wheelchair Water Polo
8 Wheelchair Show Jumping

Does the chair get a mane, tail and saddle?

9 Wheelchair Canoeing
