Special Olympics Athletes and Coaches from Austria, Ireland,
Germany, Slovakia, Russia and Romania were delighted to take part in a ski
training camp organised by Special Olympics Austria. This Alpine skiing
camp was a vital part of the athletes' preparation and training for the

January 29th. The weekend provided important training

Angelini, Josef Sabor and all the staff of Special Olympics Austria and Heinz
Petanjek for such a worthwhile and rewarding ski camp.
