What to Look For on Day 4!

Please note: if you’re not in Vancouver to watch the Games in person, there’s still a way! Different events will be live-streaming throughout the day on the ViaSport website. Check out the live-stream schedule and watch all the action here.

Day 4 of competition marks the beginning of the rhythmic gymnastics competition. The competition
will take place at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre. Make sure to check it out and send us your stories and pictures from the events! Quick fact: Rhythmic gymnastics is a female only-sport at the Games and is the second smallest summer sport with only 906 athletes!

Divisioning for soccer, softball and bocce is now over with round robin play now in action!  Divisioning races for swimming will continue into the morning, followed by final swimming races this evening at the UBC Aquatic Centre. Singles competition for 10-pin bowling takes place in Richmond at the The
Zone Bowling Centre.

If you haven’t heard, sustainability is a huge component of the 2014 Games! Efforts are being made throughout the Games to reduce waste (the goal is to be zero waste!), incorporating food scraps composting programs and minimal paper usage throughout the entirety of the Games. The
2014 Games are the first Special Olympics Games to officially dedicate an entire team toward
sustainability. Help us reach our zero waste goal and be conscious of recycling and sustainability efforts!
