Philip Lomas

110-Special-Olympics-19-03-14LR.jpgSince joining Special Olympics New Zealand 13 years ago Dunedin-based athlete Philip Lomas has achieved outstanding athletic success. He won two gold medals, a silver medal, and a bronze medal at the Special Olympics National Summer Games 2009 in Palmerston North, which he describes as “his greatest achievement [to date]”. As a tenpin bowler his all-time high score is an enviable 196.

He is equally talented in the arts. Philip writes puppet plays and performs at schools around Dunedin. He also plays the piano and attends drama classes. 
“Special Olympics has helped me to meet people and to socialise. It has allowed me to train regularly, which I really enjoy, and I can keep fit. I’ve met new friends at competitions. [As a Global Messenger] I want to spread the word about how good Special Olympics is. I’m looking forward to becoming a role model within Special Olympics,” he says.
Outside of sports training and drama, Philip works at the prestigious Donald Beasley Institute in Dunedin as a library assistant and volunteers at Idea Services.
