Special Olympics World Winter Games Update

30 Jan News

We have once again received an update from Bonnie Kahn who is coaching the United States Special Olympics team.

She sent the update prior to the opening ceremonies for the games which were held yesterday. Prior to the opening ceremonies, the coaches and athletes went to the Army base, where they were greeted by service members and their families.

The group then went to their venues for each event. Kahn is coaching the cross country ski team. She said they have preperation and ski waxing as all the ski athletes will be competing the first day.

Kahn said that they have encountered the expected glitches but commended the athletes for staying focused and taking it all in stride.

The 11th Winter Games will run through February 5th in PyeongChang South Korea.
