Swimmer from St. Catharines competing in Canada Summer Games

Emily Skulj is a Special Olympics athlete from St. Catharines, Ontario, who has been participating in sports such as Swimming for 11 years! Emily always looks forward to seeing her teammates and friends, and she loves competing at meets. For Emily, Special Olympics is an opportunity to compete in her favourite sport, swimming, and she enjoys that it has become a part of her regular routine. Emily’s best memory from Special Olympics is her first Nationals in Nova Scotia where she won a medal! She had so much fun travelling with her team and can’t wait to do it again!

Emily wants to thank all of Special Olympics donors and sponsors for supporting her team and making it possible for her to compete. Support from donors and sponsors allows every Special Olympics athlete to play and compete just like Emily!

Emily is extremely excited to be competing in the Canada Summer Games this year! You can find more information about this upcoming event at https://niagara2022games.ca/. Good luck Emily!
