Team Canada

Competition is now underway and Team Canada is pumped to make everyone proud!

Last night’s incredible Special Olympics World Games Los Angeles 2015 Opening Ceremony was a huge thrill for Special Team Canada 2015 (‪#‎SOTeamCanada15‬). Walking into the stunning Los Angeles Coliseum setting and seeing the cheering crowd of thousands made the team light up with pride, and 10-pin bowler Jordan Miner felt choked up with the incredible emotion of the moment. Thanks to Honorary Coach Mark Tewksbury and Justin Bieber for walking in with Team Canada to make this big moment extra special!
