Yesterday we were privileged to be joined by Kate Grant to support Team Great Britain at today Special Olympics World Games. Kate is 20 years old and is a model with Down’s Syndrome, Who was crowned champion in the Teen Ultimate Beauty Of The World pageant in 2018. Kate is a big sports fan and especially loves show jumping - her sister is a show jumper for Northern Ireland and proudly told us she’s had an amazing journey.
This is the first Special Olympics event Kate has attended and she was delighted to join us today to watch some of our athletes compete in a number of sports in the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) including Artistic Gymnastics. She says “All the athletes are a credit to Great Britain” and she also has a very powerful message for all the athletes competing at the World Games "Give everything a try and reach to the skies to make your dreams come true. Good luck everyone!"
Thank you for joining us today Kate and for all your support to our World Games athletes!
