Ottawa swimmer competing in Canada Summer Games

Katie Xu is a Special Olympics athlete from Ottawa, Ontario, who has been participating in Figure Skating and Swimming for 16 years! Katie always looks forward to attending events and competitions because they give her the chance to see her friends, as well as the opportunity to make new ones. Special Olympics has provided Katie with the opportunity to build confidence in herself and in her skills, which has helped her to become a great athlete! Katie loves attending competitions and winning medals, and these events have become some of her best memories from her many years involved in Special Olympics.

Katie would like to say thank you to all of Special Olympics’ sponsors and donors and explains how appreciative she is for the opportunity to participate. Katie shares how much fun she has at events and how much she enjoys being able to cheer on other athletes. Support from sponsors and donors makes these events possible!  

Katie will be competing in the Canada Summer Games this year, and we cannot wait to see all of her hard work pay off! You can find more information about this upcoming event at Good luck Katie!
