Winter Skiing

By AnneKessler

I went to the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Japan in 2005. I had a great year there and learned how to speak and eat their food, had fun and trained before the competition and enjoyed their culture. Loved the opening ceremony and the closing ceremony, met with celebs like Scott Hamilton, figure skater, had a great time there. The team did well in the competition and had three parties before coming and after.
