Special Olympics Festival - Toronto - December 5th, 2007

Just got back from the Special Olympics Festival in Toronto. Good times.

Special Olympians are my favourite athletes in the world. I love how enthusiastic they are and how they do sport for the pure joy they get out of it. It really puts things into perspective. It's not about money. It's not about placing. It's not about winning...

It's about friendships, participation, physical fitness and being the best that you can be...

I think all athletes need to remember this sometimes. It is a privilege to do sport and something that should ultimately be enjoyable.

Check out their website. If you ever feel like you need some inspiration then become involved in one of the Special Olympics events happening near you!
