Nicole Flynn to Attend World Down Syndrome Championships in Mexico

May 23, 2014   //   by kheald   //   Latest News  //  Comments Off on Nicole Flynn to Attend World Down Syndrome Championships in Mexico

One week left

Please help support Nicole in her adventure.

See the video : Nicole’s Video which also is the link for donations.

“As an athlete who has Trisomy 21, Down syndrome, I attended my first Down syndrome International Swimming competition in 2012 in Loano, Italy and won the world gold for Canada. I was the only athlete to compete in synchro from Canada and the only athlete in the world to compete in both synchro and speed swimming. I won 2 silver and three bronze international medals in speed swimming. Our 4 X 100 m women’s relay made a new America’s record. In November of 2014, I plan to attend the world championships again, this time in Morelia, Mexico, where I will defend my gold medal. As the only synchro swimmer from Canada attending this competition, I am not only responsible for the cost of my travel and accommodation but that of my coach. I am raising money to cover these costs. My parents have mainly covered my expenses, but this year I am going to BC for the synchro National’s and if I take just over one second off my breaststroke and butterfly I can go to CanAm’s too – which means more money needed for travel!

 

I train 6 days a week in two sports, that comes to about 20 hours a week.  I am also taking courses on-line to earn credits for my high school diploma.  In my spare time I take pictures of nature, and I hope to be able to get some good shots in Mexico, when I am not swimming.  Please support me in getting to Mexico where I will be able to compete on equal grounds with people from all over the world who have Down syndrome like me.”
