The Special Olympics Brockville and Area Council is proud and excited to announce that eight of our Track and Field athletes have been chosen to participate in the Special Olympics Summer Games to be held in York  Region from July 11-14, 2013. 

The Region 7 Qualifying Meet was held in Ottawa last July and Brockville's athletes competed in various running events as well as standing broad jump and long jump and shot put. Region 7 in Eastern Ontario includes many communities from Ottawa to Arnprior to Kingston and every where in-between. The entire Brockville team performed well and participated as strong, well disciplined and dedicated athletes. They have been attending practices for three years and their hard work has paid off. The team started with only six athletes and now boasts a roster of 19. Training will continue next spring at TISS on Wednesday evenings.

Congratulations to the following Region 7 Brockville athletes who will participate in the York Region Summer Games:

Brandon Carriere, Cici Dorion, Sarah Johnson, Shane Martelle, Sandi Mercier, Selina Mitchell, David Shewan and Jeff Townsend
