Khadija Sy wrapped up her competitions at Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019 with a 100m run and the 4x100 relay. They were both strong efforts, though they didn't place her in medal contention. After all the months of intense training and preparation, it's clear that the 2019 World Games were an amazing experience for Khadija, especially all the time she got to spend with her fellow athletes of Special Olympics Senegal.

Of course, if you asked her, she'll probably say her first event—her medal-winning 200m Run—was her favorite! Through it all, she's been a leader on her team and a proud part of the Revolution Is Inclusion. #Cheer4Champions!
