He is the first athlete to compete in both the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
STOP PRESS!!! THEY JUST CHUCKED HIM OFF THE TEAM (27th Feb)...WHAT A bastard of a coach! His replacement, Babikov competed in 4 events and got 33rd in this one. You've gotta feel for Mc Keever.
His event is the Men's 50 km, Mass Start Classic. It's the last event of the games.
He suffers from Stargardt disease, causing him to lose 90 percent of his vision.
"It's the Olympic Games (Paralympics) for people with physical disabilities and I hope people will realise through my story the gap is not that big."
He has just won dual Gold Medals at the Paralympics, mission accomplished. March 17, 2010.
