It is with great pride I extend congratulations to the Special Olympics Nova Scotia athletes who did an outstanding job representing our province at the 2017 World Games in Austria.
Daniel Martin, Aimee Gordon, Brianna Harris, Kaylee Stewart, Robert Fougere and coach Cyril MacDonald have made us all very proud. Together, they are bringing home 11 medals - seven gold, one silver and three bronze.
We would not be able to celebrate the success of these athletes without the dedicated coaches and volunteers who make dreams a reality for 1,700 Nova Scotians. Every Special Olympics Nova Scotia event I have the pleasure of attending, I’m reminded of how important organizations like this are to communities across the entire province.
I look forward to the Special Olympics Canada 2018 Summer Games in Antigonish, when Nova Scotia will host athletes from across Canada for the first time since 1994.
