    Default Spain Caught Cheating At Special Olympics

    A former Spanish basketball boss has been found guilty of fraud 13 years after he presided over one of the biggest scandals in sporting history.

    Fernando Martin Vicente, the former head of the Spanish Federation for Mentally Handicapped Sports, fielded athletes with no disabilities at the 2000 Paralympics in Sydney in order to win the gold medal.





    A Madrid court has now fined him 5,400 euros (4,600) and ordered him to return 142,355 euros (120,500) in government subsidies which the federation received for the athletes without disabilities.

    The scandal broke in November 2000 when Carlos Ribagorda, a member of Spain's gold medal-winning intellectually handicapped basketball team in Sydney, claimed that he and other athletes in categories such as track and field, table tennis and swimming were not mentally deficient.

    'Of the 200 Spanish athletes at Sydney at least 15 had no type of physical or mental handicap - they didn't even pass medical or psychological examinations,' he wrote in the magazine Capital just days after the Paralympics ended.

    Ribargorda said he had played for the Spanish Paralympic basketball team for over two years but had no mental handicap.

    He said the only test he had been asked to complete at his first training session was six press-ups, after which his blood pressure was taken, nor did he face an intelligence test when he was in Australia.


    The final team did comprise two players with IQs below 70 as required, but the other ten posed as mentally disabled players with the help of fake medical certificates they were provided with.

    At one point during the first game of the tournament, when they were leading China by 30 points, Ribagorda claimed the coach told the players: 'Lads, move down a gear or theyll figure out youre not disabled.'

    They went on to beat Russia in the final. But their deceit began to unravel when a picture of their victory celebrations on the court was published by Spanish sports daily Marca.

    Soon, readers started commenting that they recognised some of the players and revealed how they weren't disabled at all, it was reported by The Local.

    Martin Vicente resigned as the head of the Spanish Federation for Mentally Handicapped Sports, which was responsible for screening some participants in the Paralympics in Sydney shortly after the Capital article was published, saying he accepted 'total responsibility'.

    They were forced to return their medals and the category of intellectual disabled basketball was removed from the Paralympic program after the 2000 Games.

    He had argued that psychological evaluations of mentally deficient athletes as difficult and that mistakes had been made.

    'If someone wants to cheat, it's difficult to detect. It's easy to pretend you have little intelligence but the opposite is difficult,' he said when he announced his resignation.

    Eighteen other people, including members of the basketball team that went to Sydney and managers of the Spanish Federation for Mentally Handicapped Sports, were also charged over the affair but the court on Monday dropped the charges.

    Spain had their most successful Paralympics in Sydney, winning 107 medals to finish third in the medals table after Australia and Britain.

Fallacy of relevance eg a "red herring": The Submitter will attempt the "two wrongs make a right" tactic (or the Tu Quoque logical fallacy).- In employing evasive tactics the Muslim unwittingly admits the correctness of their opponent's original argument by implication.

    Around here they have mexicans play with the special olympians. So I guess they are saying being mexican is the same as being retarded?

    I don't mind except for the fact they suck down all the money that's supposed to go to real special olympics people. If you know any then you know it's basically their entire life, and occupies 90% of their free time and gives the parents much-needed breaks.

    Hilarious. What is the average IQ of a Mexicant? Maybe they are "Special"?

    About 85 for all countries south of border, which is borderline. Maybe 90 for USA but I am not sure. The new ones in last couple decades seem to be mostly all pure mestizo and completely illiterate. With the way reporting goes it's hard to split them out but I am guessing the same as south of the border.

    To be fair we probably get (legally) their smartest along with the dumb masses of illegals but they are probably drop in a bucket to balance them out.

    They're close. I think you're officially considered mentally retarded if you have an IQ of 80 or less.

    Interesting set of comments suggesting Mexicans are retarded (or near). Yet, there has never been a research done in Mexico, which is home to 100 MILLION + , that demonstrates Mexican indeed have a low IQ. On the other hand, there are facts that contradict to a certain extent the comments made above, like for example; the fact that Mexico is one of the countries that produces the most engineers in the world... how can this be??


    Mexico is now a top producer of engineers
    By William Booth, Published: October 28, 2012
    MEXICO CITY — In an aggressive bid to move beyond low-wage factory jobs and toward an entrepreneurial economy, Mexico is producing graduates in engineering and technology at rates that challenge its international rivals, including its No. 1 trade partner, the United States.

    President Felipe Calderon last month boasted that Mexico graduates 130,000 engineers and technicians a year from universities and specialized high schools, more than Canada, Germany or even Brazil, which has nearly twice the population of Mexico.

    “Mexico is now one of the top producers of engineers in the world,” said Oscar Suchil, director of graduate affairs at the public National Polytechnic Institute, where 60 percent of its 163,000 students are studying engineering and paying just $12 a semester in tuition.

    These aspirational students, many from humble backgrounds, want desperately to build something — for themselves and their country — and join Mexico’s growing middle class, which accounts for half of the population.

    General Electric puts Mexico in the world’s skies

    Friday, August 30, 2013

    The engines that power some of the world’s most prestigious aircraft families are developed at General Electric’s Advanced Engineering Center in Quertaro.

    General Electric’s confidence in Mexico, more specifically in the talent of its engineers, has sent the country soaring sky high. Literally. The turbine engines that several families of international commercial carriers are fitted with are designed at the General Electric Advanced Engineering Center (GEIQ) in the state of Quertaro, in addition to software that can illuminate entire buildings and devices to generate electricity and fossil fuel energy.

    The Advanced Turbomachinery Engineering Center (CIAT, for its acronym in Spanish) that preceded geiq was opened in 1999, also in the state of Quertaro. General Electric invested 24 million usd into the expansion of CIAT, which began operating under its new name in mid-February 2011.

    The research campus is one of a kind in Latin America –similar facilities are to be found only in Turkey, Russia, Poland and India. It employs 1,300 engineers, mostly graduates of Mexican universities with specializations in aerospace science and technology and who, together, devote over one million hours a year to aeronautical research. General Electric plans to pour an additional 20 million usd into the center in 2015 to take on more engineers and step up its research activities.
