Over 3,000 deaf athletes from more than 80 countries will compete in the 2013 Summer Deaflympics in Sofia, Bulgaria on July 26 - August 4.  The Deaflympics are recognized by the International Olympic Committee and modeled after the Olympic Games.  Unlike the Paralympics and Special Olympics, there are no rule modifications or special classifications in the Deaflympics.  Visual cues, such as flashing lights, are the only adaptations made.  Athletes with a hearing loss of 55 decibels or greater in their better ear are eligible to participate in international competition for the deaf.
