Beautiful Oslo setting for Alpine Skiing Competition

By Suzanne Coogan

40 Special Olympics athletes took part in the Special Olympics Norway Alpine Skiing Invitational

Set in the beautiful Oslo Vinterpark only 20 minutes from central Oslo, the Special Olympics Norway Alpine Skiing Invitational Competition has just concluded. More than 40 athletes took part in the competition which ran from 28th March to 31st March. The athletes are returning home after a hugely successful and fun filled experience. Athletes represented 5 different National Programs - Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Austria and Italy and of course athletes from Special Olympics Norway participated as well. Well done to Special Olympics Norway for hosting such a fantastic three day Alpine skiing event.
