    Sporting Bravery

    Good stuff, keep them coming. Another cyclist, Riccardo Palea lost an eye in a collision with a horse-drawn carriage during the 1914 Giro D'Italia, but overcame this trifling inconvenience by getting back on his bike and carrying on regardless.

    Sporting Bravery

    So, I was reading about American cyclist Lawson Craddock, who broke his shoulder on the opening stage of this year's Tour De France. This would be enough to make most mere mortals quit the race on the spot, but pro-cyclists know how to suffer and Craddock has kept going, in agony, through nine stages and is still in the race. This made me think of other examples of sportsmen battling through adversity. For example rugby's Wayne Shelford didn't let having his scrotum stapled back together stop him completing a match. Not did Japanese Olympic gymnast Shun Fujimoto consider a broken knee any good reason to deter him from taking part in the rings exercise, achieving a perfect dismount from eight feet above the ground. Anyway, I thought I'd start a thread about sports men and women who, for better or worse, fight their way through the pain barrier. Feel free to post contemporary and historical examples here.

    I'm pasting the following report from @camelclutchgirl below, as it appears they used the report function by mistake instead of actually posting. camelclutchgirl Submitted 1 hour ago Great job. Luís Morais, nicknamed Cabeção ("the big-headed one"), the reserve goalkeeper of 1954 Brazilian National team, is still alive. He was born in 1930-08-23.

    Mad Mike Hoare

    Welcome to the forum. We've also got a thread about Nick Du Toit, Simon Mann and Mark Thatcher which might interest you, although it hasn't seen much action recently.

    Mad Mike Hoare

    I was reading about Mad Mike's disastrous attempt at overthrowing the government of the Seychelles. Apparently one of his cohort, with a suitcase full of guns, accidently walked through the 'something to declare' aisle at the airport. His stash of weaponry was promptly found, leading to a subsequent firefight started by other members of Hoare's team. Then they all hijacked a plane and flew back home again Beats office work, I suppose.

    Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    Cause of death prostate cancer? That wasn't what it said on the tin when I was doing my DDP shopping.

    Drunk? Bored?? Psychopath???

    @The Unknown Man's lack of an avatar always amuses me for some reason. A decade of loyal service to DL and he remains...unknown. (And he only joined with encouragement, having posted as a guest for a few years before that!)

    Alas Sidney Cooke, now 91, is still wasting valuable oxygen. However I am led to believe that he may be extremely unwell at the moment - definitely one for 2019 if he makes it that far.

    Old Folkies Home

    She's had emphysema for a long time, so one to keep on our radar. I think she said about ten years ago that she couldn't walk and talk at the same time... PS I'm off to Cropredy next month MPFC for the first time in years, mainly to see Brian Wilson & Friends perform Pet Sounds, but will keep an eye out for ailing folkies and report back.

    The Deathlist Cup 2018

    Thanks everyone, especially @msc for all your hard work. Commiserations @Sir Creep, I hope you clear the final hurdle next year. It is nice to still be winning deadpools. Would still like to get a Hartlepool DP win to add to my collection, so I'm not going to be retiring any time soon.

    No changes for me either please. I'm sure my troops will deliver in time.

    Nick Du Toit / Simon Mann / Mark Thatcher

    A bit late with this one, but Ely Calil, the reclusive, rarely photographed multi-millionaire who was widely believed to have funded the 2004 Equatorial Guinea coup plot, died after falling down the stairs at his London home last month. Meanwhile, I believe all three subjects of this thread are in good health and Nick Du Toit, my joker pick in the 2006 DDP, was last heard of running a car dealership in Yemen. (Although, thinking about it, there might possibly be another reason why this lifelong mercenary and arms dealer is choosing to spend time in a nation perennially ravaged by war, but who am I to speculate?)
