“Being from Louisiana, Cayenne Pepper keeps them loose, teammates keep it fun.”
– Ted Sandoz, head coach, Unified flag football, Louisiana
Coach Sandoz couldn’t have said it any better. Team Louisiana’s Unified Flag Football team has been putting on quite a show at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games. The team has been showing off their dance moves during half time. Yesterday, the team was losing going into the half, but once they got done dancing, they came back and won the game!
Special Olympics means many different things to many different people. This video shows the trans-formative power our movement has on families, individuals, community members, teachers, coaches, etc. Watch and get inspired!
Special Olympics Great Britain Gymnastics Coach Jane Whetnall has been awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for outstanding service to the disability sport community. The MBE is awarded for a significant achievement or outstanding service to the community or for local ‘hands-on’ service which stands out as an example to other people.
She remarks, “I was especially thrilled that it was Prince William who presented the MBE. He talked to me about disability sport and the fact I would be taking the Great Britain Special Olympics Rhythmic Gymnastic team to LA 2015.” Read the full story on Special Olympics Great Britain’s website
