History on deaf sports?
no deaf sports if there were who cares no deaf sports if there were who cares no deaf sports if there were who cares no deaf sports if there were who cares THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS CLEARLY KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT THE DEAF COMMUNITY AND LIFE STYLE! There is more than enough information about the history of deaf sports. For example, the first deaf football game took pleace between England and Scotland in the 1890's. In 1945, The American Athletic Union of the Deaf was established which later was renamed to the American Athletic Association of the Deaf and finally the USA Deaf Sports Federation (renamed in 1997). The information on Deaf History could go on forever. To learn a lot of valuable information, visit USAdafsports.org. This also includes links with information about the Deaflympics!

What percentage of Americans are deaf?
As of July 2007, the _estimated_ population of the USA is 301,139,947. Using the statistics from the related link, we can derive that: * "In 1991, The National Center for Health Statistics reported that there were between 421,000 and 4.81 million deaf and hard-of-hearing people in the United States." - so between 0.13% and 2% of Americans are deaf. * "According the National Center for Health Statistics, the number of deaf people balloons to almost 20 million when referring to people who classify themselves as simply "hard of hearing."- so, taking into account the 4.81 million people, about 7% are hard of hearing. These statistics should not be taken as representative of the total amount of deaf and hard of hearing people. The 2007 population was used instead of the 2008 population, and these are old statistics - almost two decades old! Also, this is not a legitimate excuse to deny service to the deaf/hard of hearing population. Doing so is illegal and in contravention of the Americans for Disabilites Act in the USA.
