Diversity - The best part of the Canada Games

Alex & I spent 4 days at the UPEI Alumni Canada Games Place watching Track & Field.
Alex was volunteering half of each of those 4 days.

We both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and witnessed some great competition.

The very best part for me was the diversity.

Athletics included Special Olympic athletes running sprints,

as well as wheelchair races.

I hope this trend grows and soon includes many more sports.
Currently Swimming and Athletics in the Summer Games and
Figure Skating and Basketball in the Winter Games
include Special Olympic and/or Paralympic athletes.
