The Canada Games is an amazing experience for any athlete. Special Olympics athletes at past Canada Games have produced some amazing results which provided huge point contributions to Team Ontario winning the Canada Games Flag.
We believe these four athletes will have the same contribution to Team Ontario and look forward to seeing them compete against other Special Olympic athletes from across Canada.
Congratulations to our Figure Skating Athletes and Coach.
