Hello, I am here in Helsinki, Finland with my son, Eyal Damari, who is an Israeli national team athlete and who participated in the European Youth Championship 2017. Eyal Damari is a youth with special needs and he is a Special Olympics athlete in Israel, and despite the difficulties he has, he is a bowler in the Israeli youth team. Eyal Damari was the Israeli youth champion in bowling for 2015. It is the first time in the world that a Special Olympics athlete is on the Israeli national team and is competing in such a championship. As a father, I am very proud of my son, who can serve as a model for any Special Olympics athlete in the world. He shows that it's possible to succeed, and proudly implements the slogan, Give me the courage to succeed. At the opening ceremony, Eyal proudly carried the flag of Israel.
