Local Special Olympian, Ashleigh Pagnotta, is currently participating in the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games being held in LA this week. Ashleigh is competing in ten pin bowling.
She qualified after having won 3 gold medals and 1 bronze metal in the Special Olympics Canada 2014 Summer Games in Vancouver.
She is one of only 115 Athletes representing Canada at what is shaping up to be one of the biggest Special Olympics of all time.
Attending World Games means more training for Ashleigh, but she’s excited to improve her bowling skills and see what she can do when she gets to The Games. Other than her passion for bowling, Ashleigh says she loves watching hockey, with Sidney Crosby being her favourite celebrity.
Good Luck Ashleigh from all of us at SaultOnline.com!
