Team Mini Sport’s Stuart Shaw at the Special Olympics!
Winning at the Special Olympics!
Over the weekend of the 14th – 17th of June, Stuart competed in the Bocce events – Bocce is a precision ball sport, not too dissimilar to indoor bowls, that is unique to the Special Olympics.
Taking part in both singles and doubles matches, Stuart won medals in each – Silver in singles & Bronze in doubles…
Well done Stuart!
We hear that the singles match was particularly riveting & quite a close one – we look forward to Stuart sharing his Bocce skills with us at the upcoming shows!
The Special Olympics
Special Olympics changes lives. Special Olympics Ireland is first and foremost a sports organisation for people with an intellectual disability, but it provides athletes with far more than the physical benefits of sport.
It’s about fun, friendships and team spirit; it’s about a feeling of belonging, and ultimately improving quality of life. Special Olympics changes lives in so many different ways.
Through sport, athletes develop both physically and emotionally, they make new friends, realise their dreams, and know they can fit in.
Special Olympics enables them to achieve and win not only in sport but in life too.
