Mission bowlers raked in plenty of medals as part of the 71-member Special Olympics Team BC 2018.

They were all competing at the 2018 Special Olympics Canada Bowling Championships, which ran from May 15 to 19 in Prince Edward Island.

Team BC five- and 10-pin bowlers competed with skill and determination, earning 31 medals and achieving many personal bests.

The bowling contingent of Team BC 2018 is composed of 56 athletes with intellectual disabilities, 12 coaches, and three mission staff members, representing 23 communities across British Columbia.

“Team BC bowlers trained hard for the bowling championships, and it was inspiring to see their work pay off,” said Leslie Thornley, Team BC 2018 Chef de Mission.
