My Life as a Special Olympics athlete

By Meloni

This is me chilling at home

I began competing when i was 19 yrs old. My team is kieffer independent. My coaches started a team for their son who has austism. They have been going strong since their son was 8 yrs old. We compete in track and bowling. Special Olympics gives me a oppertunity to compete and be proud of my disability and earn medals. I competed at nationals level in 2010 for bowling and it was fun.

About Meloni: i am 38 1/2 years old i have 4 nephew, 1 great nephew and 1 niece
