Meet Special Olympics Team Canada 2019

In March, more than 100 Canadian athletes with an intellectual disability will compete at the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi and Dubai – the largest humanitarian and sporting event of 2019.

Special Olympics Team Canada athletes, coaches and mission staff have been working hard to proudly wear the Maple Leaf on the global stage. Training Camps have been held across the country to give dedicated athletes the opportunity to build the confidence and skills to train, compete and succeed. They’ve bonded as a team to encourage and support each other for this inspiring and exciting event.

Special Olympics Canada - and the country as a whole - is proud of Team Canada 2019.

We’re cheering for you.

Go Canada go!
