Al says that it’s a great honour to have been selected to lead the New Zealand Special Olympics team to attend the World Summer Games in Abu Dhabi, March 2018. “As the Head of Delegation for the NZ team my role (along with the coach and management team) is to create a safe, positive environment for the athletes to thrive and perform in while ensuring we are all having fun at the same time”.

During his 20 years’ as a Special Olympics volunteer Al feels that he has been lucky enough to have attended two World Games as Head Coach for basketball (Athens in 2011 and Los Angeles 2015). His aim is to use this experience along with his knowledge of the Middle East where he travels for work to benefit the whole team.

“Seeing athletes achieve things they never thought possible and exceeding their own expectations is an aspect I find extremely satisfying with Special Olympic sports. Joining Special Olympics as a coach, through sport I thought I was going to be teaching athletes sporting skills, and supporting them with development of their life skills. The reality has been the reverse, I’ve learnt more from athletes about how I should live and appreciate what’s important in life” Al shares.

Al says he feels extremely excited about the prospect of being part of one of the largest ever Special Olympics team to represent New Zealand. He has no doubt the athletes selected will do New Zealand proud while experiencing this once in a lifetime event.
