Our very best wishes to all of the 131 athletes representing Australia at the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens 25th June – 4th July 2011. The Games website is very well organized, and includes a team page identifying each athlete, their sport, and their State.
We especially congratulate these athletes from NSW, who have Down syndrome, and wish them a good Games:
Softball: Andrew Mujunen, Melissa Eustace
Gymnastics: Tracie Sammut, Ashley Kuhle, Christopher Bunton, Rhianna Sinclair, Joshua Gray
Golf: Alexander Hayes
Tennis: Nick Lorenz
Please let us know if we have missed anyone!
The website also gives several options for following the team’s progress on Facebook, Twitter, You Tube, sending ‘herograms’ and to sign up for a news feed. There is no excuse for not keeping up! To start with the team, click here.
