Delegations celebrate Games success

October 9, 2013Special Olympics around GB celebrate the succes of the Bath Games.

 

More than a month has now passed after the 9th Special Olympics Great Britain National Summer Games, where 1,700 athletes with intellectual disabilities competed in 12 sports, accompanied by 600 coaches. Everyone, from athletes and coaches to families and Games volunteers is still buzzing with memories of five inspirational days.

Many of the delegations have organised events around GB to celebrate their team success in Bath and share their experiences of sportsmanship and camaraderie with families, friends and supporters.

Special Olympics Plymouth & District has not stopped celebrating. The team went on an open topped bus tour around Plymouth centre and its sea-side front on 14 September, followed by an invitation to a City council meeting two days later, and a Civic Reception on 24 September. The partying will end with a Ball on board of the HMS Drake.

Special Olympics Tayside held a reunion on 27 September at the Reid Hall in Forfar.  The Provost of Angus was in attendance to present certificates to athletes and coaches.

Special Olympics Wales hosted a party and disco at The Copthrone Hotel Culverhouse Cross in Cardiff on 28 September.

Special Olympics Surrey is organising a reception at the Guildhall in the Mayor’s parlour for all its athletes, coaches and carer to be be held in early November, said Sandie Barker.

Following the return from Bath, Special Olympics Dumfries & Galloway will be also celebrating the team success with a Civic Reception on Friday 1st November in Annan.

Sandra Proudfoot, Head of Delegation of  Special Olympics Dumfries & Galloway, explained: “We have invited the delegation and their families and friends, local councillors, sponsors, grant funders and all other people who helped to support our team in the run up to the Games.  There will be no special guests since we want the athletes to be the focus and recognise their success and all will be awarded with a memento.”

Sandra added, “the team did the area proud!, all competing to their best and the medals were a great bonus. The athletes and coaches had a fantastic time, making many new friends and didn’t want to come home!  I must thank the athletes for making it such an enjoyable, yet emotional week and special thanks to the coaches and support staff who all worked extremely hard to make sure the athletes had a great time.  I must also thank the large contingent of families who travelled down to support the team and everyone who supported the team in any way to make this trip possible, raising the necessary funds and preparing the athletes at the weekly sports clubs to compete at their best.”

” The quote above echoes the feedback received from the 17 delegations that took part in the games. At the Special Olympics GB  National Development office we thank everyone for making the 2013 Games in Bath a huge success”, said: Andrea Zapata-Nalsen, Communications Manager of Special Olympics GB.
