Photos: Special Olympics Track & Field Event

October 15, 2017 | 0 Comments

The Special Olympics Bermuda hosted their track and field heats this weekend at the National Sports Centre, with a torch relay getting the proceedings underway.

The day began in the morning with a torch relay involving members of the Police and Fire departments who carried torches from Somerset and St. George’s, before lighting a cauldron at the Sports Centre for the opening of the event.

Special Olympics Bermuda reactivated its charitable status in November 2015, after a ten-year hiatus. It was reborn thanks to the efforts of Ms Zuill and Rickey Watts, of CedarBridge Academy. Both have supported past students for 15 years at local and overseas regional sporting events.

Ms Zuill said, “It is our hope that Bermuda will be able to take a team to Dubai in 2019 for the World Games. That is our goal and we are working very hard to try and make that happen.”
