Another successful Special Olympics Summer Games has been completed. There was no shortage of inspiration as over 2,500 athletes participated and over 3,000 people volunteered to help make this event a great one.
My team of Brad Abouchedid, Joey Clawson, Joe Bodner, Alex Armour, Mike Capone, Laura Kasper, and Chrissy Acton gave it their all! Many of them even got medals! I enjoyed playing Unified Doubles with Joey Clawson (above) and we defended our gold medal from last year!
The focus of our athletes is having fun and giving a full effort. As a by-product, they won medals. Win or lose, it doesn’t matter, it’s how you play the game. And if you play the game with fun and the right attitude, you win more. Not the other way around.
Take the philosophy of these special athletes and start winning some medals in your own life!
