Special Olymics Trans Tasman Tournament: good luck!

People with Down syndrome will be well represented at the third Trans Tasman Tournament from Friday - Sunday this week. The NSW team is flying to New Zealand today. Good luck to all the athletes:
From 25-27 November 2016, 120 Australian athletes with an intellectual disability will represent their state/territory at the third Trans Tasman Tournament in Hamilton, New Zealand. 
Athletes will compete in aquatics and athletics in a celebration of achievement and sportsmanship. For many athletes this will be their first taste of international competition with many of them being part of a travelling team for the first time ever!
Check out who's in the team from the Special Olympics Australia website, here, and offer support if you can.

Lots of photos on Special Olympics Australia's Facebook page in the lead up and throughout the tournament.
