“Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” – Special Olympics Athletes Oath
Almost 400 students competed at the 16th annual OCSB Special Olympics Ontario Swim Meet on May 9th and 11th. Hosted by the OCSB Special Education and Student Services Department, this uplifting two-day event let our student athletes shine. Their spirit was evident in all areas of the pool. They demonstrated true grit and perseverance, from the assisted walk to the 50m races. The focus of the meet was friendly companionship and competition, and our athletes made us all proud on both counts. It was truly an inspirational day for everyone. See more on Storify.
