The powerful social benefits of sport are of particular importance to people with an intellectual disability because one of the first effects of their disability is social isolation. For many Special Olympics athletes, training sessions become the source and the nourishment of their deepest friendships.
Team Saskatchewan takes home gold in the, 2016 Special Olympics Canada Winter games. The majority of this team is comprised of Regina athletes, with three from Manitoba and four from Saskatoon. They will be representing our country in the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games on March 14th to 25th in Austria. They will be joined by Regina speed skater Terry Livingstone. Congragulations guys and best of luck!
