Jacob says, “I’m on fire!” Jacob’s mom is a volunteer for the Special Olympics Brantford program. His cousin is also an athlete competing in the World Games. Jacob says though he found it tough, he is proud to receive a B+ in math by challenging himself to study and work on his own. Jacob’s next goal is to bring home Gold for Canada.
