Well done Billy and Craig! – Our Special Olympians

Well done Billy and Craig! – Our Special Olympians

Some of our Learners took part in a Special Olympics athletics event at Lee Valley Athletics Centre.

Lee Valley is where the gold medal winning Olympians Greg Rutherford and Jonnie Peacock trained for London 2012, so we were honoured to be asked to take part in an event at this venue.

Billy gained 4th and 9th place in the 60m and shot and Craig gained a silver in the running and a bronze in the shot. We were all so proud of their achievements.

We would like to say a huge well done to our two Special Olympians in London in the Special Olympics Athletics event. Billy and Craig were part of Gateshead’s special Olympics team representing the North East in this special one day event which was held on Sunday 21st October 2018
