Eden Woollery captures bronze medal at Special Olympics Summer Games

Medal joy: Bermuda equestrian Eden Woollery, who claimed a bronze medal in the Western Equitation B1 Class

Eden Woollery won Bermuda’s first medal of this year’s Special Olympics USA Summer Games, claiming bronze in the sport of equestrianism.

Woollery, one of the island’s four athletes competing in Orlando, Florida, finished third overall competing in the Western Equitation B1 Class.

Also in action have been tennis players Micah Lambert, and Bridget Marshall. Taking to the court on the opening day of the Games on Monday, Lambert came away with back-to-back victories, overcoming Santiago Castro 6-1 and John Ngo 6-0.

Marshall, meanwhile, had mixed fortune, losing 6-1 against Michelle Zhang in her opening match before responding strongly to claim a 6-0 victory over Andie Ztek.

The pair returned to action the next day with Marshall overcoming Angela Dohrn 6-1, before going down to Kayla Justin Liddy by the same margin, while Lambert endured a tough day on court losing to both Shakir Stapletons and Jain Hui Li 6-1.

Lambert and Marshall also paired up in the mixed doubles competition, where they again had mixed fortunes, winning their opening match 6-2, before suffering defeat by the same scoreline.

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 event.
