Special Olympics World Games – Los Angeles 2015

We are delighted to report that two of our Athletes have been selected for next year’s World Summer Games which is being held in Los Angeles. Stephen Dodd has been selected as part of the Kayaking Team. He has trained really hard in recent years and had great medal success in various national competitions he has entered. We would like to thank Brian Day and Tamar Canoe Association who have been assisting with Stephens training locally.

Our other Athlete selected is Elizabeth Haywood who is going to compete as part of the GB team at Badminton. Elizabeth has competed in many competitions over the last few years and has won several Gold Medals including Gold at the Special Olympic National Games held in Bath last year.

Alan Stockdale, a  Co-founder of SOPD, said ‘This is a fantastic achievement, to be selected to compete for your country and said that it is well deserved for all the hard work that Stephen and Elizabeth have given to their sport’.

Follow their progress on our World Summer Games LA page (coming soon!).
