Special Olympics Canada 2018 Bowling Championships PEI Island-Made Championship Medals

Team Nova Scotia (Team NS)  gets things rolling in Prince Edward Island (PEI) with five Nova Scotia athletes competing in the Bowling Championships this past week.

The PEI Bowling championships launched with fanfare on May 14th as a kick-off to the National Summer Games in Antigonish #SO2018, starting July 31st . Two members of Nova Scotia’s bowling team are familiar with winning, as Amanda Smith and Mark Deveau received gold medals in 2017 at the Provincial Games.

There is a lot of experience on this team, between Michelle Wilson, Mark Deveau, and Martin Fudge, they have 75+ years collectively as active competitors in the Special Olympics.

5-pin bowling, one of Special Olympics Canada’s original sports, is Team Nova Scotia’s specialty.

It was a great week of competition in Prince Edward Island!
