Kelly Wren | Special Olympics athlete and leader
Hi everyone, as we go into not being able to train or compete with Special Olympics and we can’t see each other and talk and laugh together, I thought it would be a good time to share some ideas on how we can stay connected with each other. We are all still team-mates and training friends after all.
We have already been given ideas about staying fit and healthy while isolated at home with links to Fit 5, Find Your 30 and Sprout – an app for fitness which you can download.
Here they are if you don’t have them already:
Stay in Touch
I believe we need to stay in contact with each other. How do we do that? Here are some ideas that I have thought about:
Let your fellow athletes and friends know that you are there for them and be grateful that they are there for you as well.
We have each other covered and we have each other’s backs. It’s what we do when we are training and competing – let’s continue that during this time. Let’s support each other.
Special Olympics Australia and Special Olympics International care about the athletes and have made their decisions based on the latest information and in our best interests. Let’s ensure that we all do our part for each other and for our coaches and for our families.
And let’s work together to make sure that no-one feels alone or forgotten.
