People with learning disabilities can find it difficult to get involved with sport, but the Omagh Special Olympics Club wants to make that a thing of the past. Since officially forming in 2006, adults and children with special needs have been able to take part in a range of equestrian and aquatic activities, both training and competing.
A National Lottery grant helped ensure the teams were kitted out in smart uniforms when taking part in training sessions and competitions, boosting the esteem of everyone involved. For any person with learning disabilities, the experience of training and competing in events is immensely rewarding, as it is for the volunteers who help them to go on and win medals.
