Unified Sports-Coach

By Mario Madrid

Our first Balcarce 2013 Unified Sports tournament left us a clear message without prejudice that with love and with great teamwork we can all achieve. Throughout the course of the event I managed to capture everything that depicts the word "unified". All athletes formed a great team of people with joy, commitment and eager to share. They gave their maximum effort; if not, they were brave trying. Thanks for letting me be part of a beautiful Special Olympics program.

About Mario Madrid: I teach physical education in the cities of Mar del Plata and Balcarce. Working with both conventional students and students with intellectual disabilities. I enjoy my work and I have been fortunate to participate in sports, travels, and training for coaches. I am very proud and happy to work for Special Olympics.
