SPECIAL OLYMPICS — Some 400 Special Olympics athletes gathered May 24 at E.D. Feehan Catholic High School in Saskatoon for a track meet, marking the school’s 40th anniversary as host of the event. E.D. Feehan staff and the entire student body — some 550 people — run the event, officiating, timing races, keeping records, and escorting athletes. The athletes, who range in age from five to 75 years, participate in a variety of events, including ball throw, shot put, 50-metre and 100-metre races, and long jump. The Special Olympics provides people with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to realize their potential, develop their physical fitness, demonstrate courage, and experience friendship through athletic participation.
