Athletes to compete at Special Olympics
Bermuda will be sending a strong contingent of athletes to compete at the 2019 Special Olympic World Summer Games to be held in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, from March 14 to 22.
The team of 13 determined athletes will be competing in disciplines including athletics, tennis, boccia, bowling and equestrianism.
Special Olympic Bermuda’s main focus is on the well being of the island’s learning disabled population through sport. The learning disabled population is often overlooked and excluded from sporting and social bodies and as a result the organisation are on a mission to start a “revolution of inclusion”.
Attending the Games is a major achievement for the athletes, who have worked tirelessly to meet the requirements needed to qualify, and their accomplishments should rightfully be celebrated and embraced by the nation.
