Deaflympics

Brief History

The ICSD (International Committee of Sports for the Deaf) accepted the WDGF’s proposal to be added to the 2017 Deaflympics program.  The original proposal was submitted for the 2013 ICSD Congress – it was not approved by the ICSD Executive Board until 2015.  At the WDGC 2016 Closing Ceremony, ICSD Vice President David Lanesman announced that the golf event is officially a medal sport.
