The first Athlete that we interviewed was competing in floor hockey. This athlete's name was Alexander from South Austria. He has been apart of Special Olympics for two years. Alexander competes not only in floor hockey but football as well. His favorite part of the 2013 Special Olympics games here in the Republic of Korea was the opening ceremonies.
