This is one of my best mates brother and I am proud to have met him on several occasions. Well done Jonathon – very excited to see what he will do next.
He was only beaten by 0.08 of a second!
Jonathon is part of the Special Olympics World Games 2015. He has had to work hard to qualify and none of his costs are funded. He has had to find the lot. I am impressed with all athletes who will all have to find their own funding.
The Special Olympics World Games are an international sporting competition for athletes with intellectual disabilities, organized by Special Olympics.
Google has done an excellent graphic as part of their web search header. They also have an excellent blog post on Five ways we’re celebrating the Special Olympics and #ADA25
