Team Canada Day 3!

Yesterday was a huge day for Special Olympics Team Canada! The rhythmic gymnasts closed out their LA2015 competitions with grace, style, and a truckload of medals. The 10-pin bowlers charged into their first day of competition and earned six medals and great results overall, while bocce team members won three gold medals in singles play. With many great performances in athletics, basketball, golf, soccer, softball, and swimming, it was an awesome day all around. ‪#‎SOTeamCanada15‬

Today the golfers just teed off, athletics and softball action is on this morning, and we’re looking forward to swimming finals and an exciting basketball game this afternoon!
