Track Athletes Rock the Provincial Games

Zoe proudly receiving a Gold

Congratulations to our Track and Field Athletes Katie, Mert and Zoe for bringing home handfuls of medals from the Ontario Special Olympics Provincials Games at the weekend.

Not only did they each achieve multiple Gold medals, but they were fantastic representatives for Special Olympics Burlington and for the South Central team. You rocked the orange and blue team colours!

It was a hot three days of competing in more ways than one. The summer weather did not disappoint – and the competition did not disappoint. 1500 athletes from all over Ontario came together to run, jump and throw – and the pressure did not get to Mert, Zoe and Katie at all!
