    Story

    2018 is the 50th Anniversary of the Special Olympics... Through the power and joy of sports, Special Olympics transforms lives. Since 1968, Special Olympics has been offering people with intellectual disabilities year-round training and competitions in Olympic-style sports - there are more than 32 individual and team sports – from Alpine Skiing to Volleyball. Their motto is "Win or lose, the goal is always to be brave in the attempt!" I was shocked to discover that there is a risk the Special Olympics will not be able to continue without funding - competitors are having to pay for themselves to enter which is often too much for some young people ... seriously! Come on guys! I decided that I would try to complete the London Classics (before its too late!) starting with the 2 mile Swim Serpentine on the 19th September 2017 ... I will provide updates on how the training is going, do my best to complete all 3 Classics but would really appreciate all your support! Cheers! Barry

      Thanks everyone for your support so far ... first event on Saturday! I am thinking the beard might slow me down so it might have to go! Apparently Tana and the kids are not going to be able to man the support boat ... apparently they don't allow an overloaded canoe to splash alongside whacking me with the paddle! It looks like it might be a bit colder than the south of France ...
