Below is a Guest Blog Post by Olympic champion and Special Olympics Board Director Michelle Kwan:
Having trained for two Olympic Games I know firsthand how hard these athletes have been working to prepare– and let me tell you that preparation paid off! I had the opportunity to roller skate with some athletes in a Unity Sport Event along with my friend, Apolo Anton Ohno, and I think I can speak for the both of us when I say how impressed we were with their skills, determination and unbelievable enthusiasm.
Tim Shriver always says that the secret ingredient of Special Olympics isn’t that the athletes compete against each other; they compete against themselves to achieve their personal best.
Congratulations to all the athletes and good luck achieving your personal best!
