Just it let everyone know that Shauna competed in the Downs Syndrome Federation European Championships last Saturday and has added to her medal haul, with a silver in the 100m IM and a silver in the 50m breaststroke. Not only that but she was up at dawn on the Sunday for the 5 hour drive back to Liverpool, eager not to miss the club gala!
Her other fantastic news is that she is one of only 4 swimmers selected to swim for GB at the Southern Californian Special Olympic Games in Los Angeles. There are several different sports, 14 different countries taking part with 1500 athletes , 300 coaches and thousands of spectators expected. Shauna flies out to Los Angeles with the other members of the GB team on 4th June, more information can be found on their website www.sosc.org/summergames. Mum and dad will of course be there to cheer her on.
A huge thank you for the support Shauna receives from everyone and I am sure she will do her best to add to her medal collection.
