Junior Blind Olympics

Hi, everyone!

I’m so glad I’m writing again! It’s been such a long time. Sorry! On May second, I attended the Junior Blind Olympics. I met last year’s winner of the DCYS, Heaven Vallejos. Also, I saw her twin, Alan. They were really funny together. Then, we started the games. There was shot put, long jump, archery, judo, goalball, the obstacle course, tandum cycling, the 25 yard dash, rock climbing, and canoeing. My favorite event of the day was rock climbing. It was a little scary because you didn’t know if you’d fall, but you had to trust in yourself, and trust in the ropes. I ended up making it in two minutes. Below is the link to my rock climbing video, when I had to ring this bell to let them know I was done. I also enjoyed goalball, which was fun because I got to practice the defence. Later on, I got two silvers in the 25-yard dash, the obstacle course, and a gold in rock climbing. I can’t wait to go again next year. For the blind and visually impaired community, make sure you get involved in this amazing event! For the adults out there, you could be coaches, volunteers who help the kids, and if you have a kid out there, cheer them on! I’ll write again soon!

Until next time,
Taylor
