I was lucky enough to get another day of leave from my Monday to Friday job, so that i could shoot the last day of competition for the Special Olympics.
My morning started off at the football (soccer)
From the football i headed back over to the basketball for an afternoon of medal presentations:
Once these had finished i ducked next door to the badminton medal presentations:
Once the medal presentations were done, i then headed to Stockton Beach for what i think definitely has to be the best event of the whole games – beach experience. This was where all the athletes were taken to a beach around Newcastle (we used about 7 local beaches) and they got to experience the surf culture/experience that we are so lucky to have here. They got to play in the water, hang with our amazing lifesavers and run around on the beach. The weather and seas were just perfect we couldnt have ordered a better afternoon. The smiles on the faces of the athletes had everyone smiling and at times i think it was hard to find a single person that wasnt smiling ear to ear!
