Deaf Sport Australia still thrives with new sports such as sailing, mountain bike riding, futsal emerging as future sports. National Sport Organisations and government are now taking responsibility to ensure deaf and hard of hearing Australians are being included in sport programs and opportunities. The future is looking healthy. 140 years of deaf sports is looking for another 140 years to enjoy.
