Great performance by Special Olympians – Grange
Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport Olivia Grange has described as ‘a great display’ the performance by Jamaica’s delegation to the Special Olympics in Abu Dhabi.
The sports minister’s comment follows Jamaica’s 15 gold in a 33-medal haul at the Special Olympics, which exceeds all previous performances by a Jamaican Special Olympics team. Along with the gold medals, there were 10 silver and eight bronze.
‘Much to celebrate’
“Our Special Olympians have consistently done well, giving us much to celebrate, and have certainly played their part in making Jamaica the great sporting nation that it is.
“I wish not only to congratulate the Special Olympians but to praise team support staff and officials for their dedicated service and leadership.
“I look forward to welcoming home from Abu Dhabi our valiant Special Olympians on behalf of a proud and grateful nation,” Grange said in a release yesterday.
