NCN Special Olympics Athletes Win Gold
Local fans were cheering for 13-year old twins, William and Jemiha Hart from Thompson at the recent 2016 Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. The two young athletes had an amazing time and represented Manitoba and their First Nation extremely well.
The games wrapped up on March 6 and were held from February 29th and female athlete Jemiha Hart won big, taking home the gold in the 200-meter snowshoe event. She also finished 4th in the 100-meter. William Hart placed 7th in men’s level-two skating at his first time competing.
The snowshoeing conditions at Blow Me Down Trails were very challenging at times, with extreme winds and heavy snowfall. Team Manitoba’s Jemiha Hart persevered through all the extra challenges thrown at her and came out with the gold medal. Read the Newsletter for the complete story.
