Tennis gets its name from the French word ï¿½Tenezï¿½, which means ï¿½Here you goï¿½. Players used to shout this phrase before they served the ball. At Athens 1896, the first Olympic Tennis tournament was won by Irish student John Boland. He went to the Games just to watch, but returned an Olympic champion.
In contrast to the cheers and applause that ring out around most Paralympic Games venues, the Goalball arena is a place of silence whilst the ball is in play. Fans must keep quiet to enable the players, who all have visual impairments, to hear the ball.
The sport was developed as a rehabilitation activity for injured soldiers returning from WWII.
