A small delegation including four athletes from Special Olympics Bermuda has travelled to Orlando, Florida, for the USA Summer Games.

More than 5,500 athletes and coaches from the United States and the Caribbean, and 125,000 spectators will come together to “Shine As One” at the event, which runs until Sunday.

Approximately 20 sport disciplines will hold competition throughout the week, with Bermuda being represented in tennis and equestrianism.

Tennis players Micah Lambert and Bridget Marshall and equestrienne Eden Woollery are no strangers to international competition, having competed in the quadrennial Special Olympics World Games held in Dubai in 2019.

Since their last appearance on the international stage, all three athletes have trained weekly for this opportunity to represent the country.

Special Olympics Bermuda Athlete Leader Danielle Gibbons is also in attendance representing all Special Olympics Programmes from the Caribbean region as a member of the Games’ Athlete Input Council.

Gibbons will take part in speaking engagements, organise volunteer training and other activities during the weeklong event.

The Bermuda public can keep up to date with the athletes’ progress on the Special Olympics Bermuda Facebook page where scores and updates will be posted over the event.

ABC and ESPN’s networks and platforms will also have extensive coverage and specials on the USA Games.
