Harry, Chelsea and Anna review the Special Olympics World Games 2023
Mandy went on an excursion to the Special Olympics Victorian State Games with her roving podcast mic and chatted with impressive young athletes and leaders Harry and Chelsea. Harry and Chelsea were attending the games following their trip to Berlin, where they represented Australia at the Special Olympics World Games 2023.
First, Harry talks about all the amazing experiences, friendships and fun he enjoyed at the Games. Harry also talks about his time in the Special Olympics Athlete Leadership Program, where he learned leadership and communication skills and gained opportunities to provide feedback and consultation on making the Games the best experience possible. This outstanding young leader also chats about his qualifications and his current work as Allied Health Assistant at a Melbourne hospital.
Next, Chelsea talks about her Berlin games experience, and her current role in the Athlete Leadership Program, where she’s developing valuable skills, building relationships and finding opportunities to share her story, feel included and represent her country. This young powerhouse is also the Athlete’s Representative on the Law Enforcement Torch Run International Executive Council, where she is the representative for over 5 million athletes around the world, and only the second non-American athlete to hold the position.
Kate joins Mandy to chat with Anna Mezger, Harry’s mum and a Special Olympics Australia board member. She gives both a parent and board members view of the Special Olympics World Games, and all of the learnings she's gained from attending the largest inclusive sporting event in the world, attended by 7000 athletes and 18000 volunteers!
