Special Olympic Wins at Coleg Cambria
Two students from Coleg Cambria Northop are celebrating after winning medals in the Special Olympics recently.
Twenty one year old Peter Millar from Birkenhead won a gold medal in singles tennis in the Special Olympics competition held in Luxemburg. Representing Great Britain, he beat players from Switzerland, Monaco and the Netherlands.
“I love sport; it’s my life. I love competing too. I want to do something with my life that’s amazing and I really enjoy representing Coleg Cambria and Great Britain.”
Twenty year old Sarah Mathers from Ellesmere Port won the 600 metre Power Race in Reutlingen, Germany.
Reutlingen is twinned with Ellesmere Port and the team were able to spend some time with local young people who also have learning disabilities.
They visited a museum and took part in art and music workshops during their time in Germany.
They also attended an official reception at the Town Hall and met with the Head of Culture and Development.
“I’m really energetic and I don’t like sitting at home being bored, I prefer to be doing something active. I love sport, Peter and I have become great friends and are interested in each other’s competitions, and we always wish each other good luck!”
Peter and Sarah’s tutor, Lyn Morris said:
“Coleg Cambria is very proud of Peter and Sarah’s achievements in the Special Olympics Their recent successes are remarkable accomplishments and reflect some of the skills attained through their education at college.” Spotted something?
