Fansided Shines a Spotlight on School of Strength

Three athletes working out on a baseball field.

The following is an excerpt from the article titled Special Olympics’ School of Strength is Going Worldwide published on Fanisided.com.

The popularity of School of Strength continued to grow, even after COVID-19 restrictions began to ease, so much so that Special Olympics decided to launch a similar program aimed at Hispanic athletes.

Escuela de Fuerza launched in October of this year, and it was developed in partnership with Special Olympics Global Ambassadors and MLB superstars Gleyber Torres of the New York Yankees, and Willson Contreras of the Chicago Cubs.

The two played a similar role to what Becky Lynch did in the English version, and are featured in the workout series alongside Special Olympics athletes Abigail Zamorano, Belem Chavez, Julián Rodriguez, Ramón Jiménez, and Tomás Monsiváis.
