Exciting News!

I have the best news. I am going to the National Games!

That's me - climbing onto the podium to get a gold medal.

That’s me – climbing onto the podium to get a gold medal.

When I was in North Bay at the Provincial Games, I won two gold medals and 1 silver medal. At those games I was trying to qualify for Team Ontario for the National Games and I just found out I made it.

The Special Olympics Canada Winter National Games are in Cornerbrook, Newfoundland in 2016.

I got a congratulations letter from Special Olympics Ontario that said training starts now. That is exciting. I will be up in Beaver Valley at the end of March doing some training.

I will be working hard all year on my training. I will be training every day. I want to ski my best.

I know I will have lots of fun at the games. I will meet lots of new friends from all across Canada. At the London Knights games after the Knights score they play this:

I know this is going to be awesome. I cannot wait.

  1. Hi Val!! What amazing and wonderful news. You have made a real place for yourself at the top of the heap in skiing! Congratulations – I hear Newfoundland is just a fabulous place to visit. I hope you have a map somewhere with pins in it on every place you have been in the world.
    This is a nice way to head into your birthday month, and if I’m not mistaken, you are about to turn TWENTY-FIVE!!!
    So much to celebrate – have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the whole month of b’day festivities.
