Special Olympics Athletics Event 2015

A Special Olympics athletics competition was held in Morton Stadium, Santry on Tuesday the 9th of June 2015.

We had a fun filled day! Nineteen of our athletes competed and lots of their friends and families turned up to support them.

Our athletes came home with 15 gold medals (8 silver and 4 bronze).

“I had the time of my life! It was the first time I won a medal for running. I was happy that all my friends were there to support me” – John Yilmaz

“I ran my fastest time yet and came in first place. My mother and niece were there to cheer me on” – Mary McGuirk

Some of our wonderful supporter!

 

Well done to everyone involved!
