Kell Brook becomes Ambassador for Special Olympics GB National Games in Sheffield

21 Apr

KELL & SPECIAL OLYMPICS

Special Olympics Great Britain is delighted to announce that Kell Brook is to be a new Ambassador for the charity’s National Games in Sheffield this summer.

Kell is currently one of the biggest names in the World of boxing.

Sheffield born Kell Brook said: “Having met a number of the Yorkshire based athletes who are taking part in the Special Olympics National Games in Sheffield, I was able to understand how passionate people with learning disability are about sport.

“It reinforced to me that people with disability care about sport as much as me and everyone else.

“I couldn’t be prouder to stand up for these exceptional athletes with learning disabilities.

“I will be there in August in Sheffield watching the Special Olympics GB athletes in action across the city.”

Why Are The Games Important?

  • The Games gives athletes with an intellectual (learning) disability the opportunity to achieve and to demonstrate their abilities to the community.
  • The event will attract athletes with intellectual (learning) disabilities from across England, Scotland and Wales.
  • Through participation in this large national competition, people with an intellectual (learning) disability will acquire the confidence and social and life skills that will help their inclusion in society.

The games offer people the opportunity to give back to the community and make a difference when coaching, officiating and volunteering at the event.

Special Olympics GB is the largest provider of a year-round, all ability, sports programme in Great Britain and supports over 10,000 athletes with intellectual (learning) disabilities on a continued basis.

Across England, Scotland and Wales, approximately 27,000 regular sports coaching sessions of at least 1 hour each, are delivered locally each year by 140 accredited programmes across 28 different sports.

This coaching activity leads to an annual average of 100 all ability, inclusive sports competitions. Its competition pathways make Special Olympics Great Britain unique within the disability sports sector as it provides, for athletes of all abilities, opportunities to compete and progress at local, regional, national and international levels.  This extensive programme is led by over 4,000 dedicated volunteers in a variety of sports coaching, administrative, event, logistic, fundraising and supporting roles.

For our athletes, excellence is personal achievement, a reflection of reaching one’s maximum potential – it is a goal to which everyone can aspire.

For those Special Olympics athletes who attain an elite level in their sport, we signpost and support a pathway into Paralympics and other elite competitions.
