Special Olympics – Let the Games Begin

Day 1 of competition and i was tasked with basketball and table tennis. We had 6 photographers covering 4 basketball courts and 8 table tennis courts, needless to say we were kept very busy !!!

The competitiveness of these athletes should not be under-estimated but its the humility and caring that really gets you – they fall over, get knocked over and its just as likely to be someone on the other team helping them up and cheering them back into the play as it might be someone on their own team.

There were no medals today but everyone was fighting to get through to the next rounds, so they left nothing on the benches including their smiles!
