In case you missed it…

Day 2 of the Games was one for the record books! Team Newfoundland and Labrador athlete Jackie Barrett, broke a provincial record in Powerlifting! Jackie squatted an astounding 607 lbs (275.5 kgs)! Toronto Maple Leaf and Special O supporter, Jake Gardiner, showed Special Olympics Ontario athletes he’s not just a great hockey player. Gardiner broke out the soccer ball and demonstrated his fancy footwork yesterday with some soccer players from Special Olympics Ontario. Great to see everyone not only competing hard, but having fun!
