FORT WAYNE, Ind. (FORT WAYNE’S NBC) – The International Goalball Qualifier wraps up Tuesday in the Fort, as the USA women’s team takes on China for the gold medal.
Before the event comes to a close, Fort Wayne’s NBC sports reporter, Megan Salle, jumps into the action.
Two alternates for the USA men’s team, Daryl Walker and Cody Carmicle, coach the media teams.
They teach the new players how to throw the ball, block it and communicate, while wearing blinders and not being able to see.
After the experience, Megan says, “It was fun, but challenging. I have a lot of respect for the United States Association of Blind Athletes.”
