Goalball was invented in 1946 to help with the rehabilitation of visually impaired war veterans. Now it is an awesome team sport where people hurl balls with bells in them at tremendous speeds. Scope reporter Judd Buchanan met with Simon Richard of Canada's Parapan Goalball team, at the team's open practice at the Hershey's Centre to talk about this exciting and unique sport that is played completely blindfolded.
