Christina Judd-Campbell (ON) and Emily Boycott (ON) showcased their talents in the Level 4 competition, with Judd-Campbell taking home 4 gold and one silver and Boycott earning two gold and three silver. Boycott, Mar, Celine LaBrecque (ON) and Ashley Wilwand (MB) took home silver in the group ball routine.
  • Special Olympics Team Canada 10-pin bowlers came charging out of the gate on their first day of competition, winning six medals in team and doubles events. Despite having to play both events on the same day, the Team Canada bowlers thrived and showcased their skills under pressure.
  • Three bocce players racked up three gold medals in the singles competition on Day 3. Chad Conlon (BC), Lynden Hicks (BC) and Ben Willms (BC) all achieved first-place results, bringing the bocce team’s medal total to four.
