President of the Special Olympics Dominica Ainsworth Irish elatedly declared that ” Special Olympics Dominica continue to make Dominica proud in Abu Dhabi in the 2019 games.”

According to Ainsworth Irish, the Special Olympics Dominica Team participating in the Olympics competition in Abu Dhabi is doing exceptionally well.

He says a pair of Kalinago female team members, Melissa Dupigney and Liza Lucien defeated another pair scoring 15-1 points. In addition, Dupigney and Lucien were victorious in another game later that day which secured a gold medal for Dominica in the women’s double final in Bocce.

Irish also commended the male team members, namely Claudius Shiply and Christian Dailey since they had successfully earned a silver medal in a men’s 100m race.

Ainsworth Irish says despite Dominica having one of the smallest teams, the team members who has been in Abu Dhabi for the past two weeks are performing to the best of their ability.

“7500 athletes from 190 nations are in the World Games and despite the fact that in Dominica we have only been playing on the grass in the Botanical Gardens,” said Irish as he made mention of the fact that the other athletes from international circuits have been playing on synthetic tracks. “Dominica is doing very well… and they are making us proud.”

According to Irish, the tally thus far is three gold medals, two silver and one fourth and fifth place.
