Brampton brothers Nicholas and Benjamin Paribello each claimed four medals at the Special Olympics Provincial Winter Games in North Bay.
Brampton Guardian

NORTH BAY – Four Brampton Special Olympians recently attended the Special Olympics Ontario (SOO) Winter Games in North Bay, bringing back 13 medals.

Benjamin Paribello and his brother Nicholas Paribello were among the cross-country skiers battling the -30C temperatures. Both did well, Nicholas in skate skiing and Benjamin in classical skiing.

They were competing for the Barrie Striders team in the South Central region. Benjamin claimed double gold in the 500 metres classic and 3 x 1 km relay classic with silver in the 100m and 1 km classic. Nicholas won four silvers in the 1k, 2.5, 5k and 3 x 1k freestyle relay events.

Both credit their exceptional fitness to their participation in Special Olympics Ontario bowling and SOO track and field in Brampton, twice weekly training in Barrie and personal training with Kerry Dennie’s Let’s Get Fit in Georgetown.

Brothers Jared and Matthew MacMichael, who have recently moved to Brampton from Sault Ste. Marie, also participated and earned medals. Jared, competing for the North East Ontario District earned all medal colours with two golds in the 7.5 km and 3 x 1 km classic relay events, silver in the 5 km classic and bronze in the 2.5 km classic.

Matthew, competing with the Sault Ste. Marie Sliders curlers, helped that team to gold in its division.

The athletes now anxiously await the roster for the National Games scheduled for February of 2016 in Corner Brook, Nfld., hoping for their chance to compete there.

BRAMPTON — Members of the B level soccer team of Special Olympics Brampton earned some lasting memories recently as they spent a week in Barbados.

The team was hosted by Special Olympics Barbados and the Brampton players and coaches received a warm welcome and made many new and lasting friends. The Brampton contingent included athletes Campbell Brown, Marc Campbell, Jamie Campbell, Steven Couto, Robyn Lewis, Ashelle Hylton, Alex DeNicholias, Joshua Rivest, Brian Newton and Claudio Perrone.

Coaches were Neil Lewis, Ramy Morcos, Carlo DeNicholias, Stephanie Rogge with club manager Carole Lewis.

The team’s arrival at Grantley Adams International Airport was covered by the media. The next day, a Thursday, they toured the Challenor Creative Arts and Training Centre, meeting many of the Special Olympics Barbados athletes they would face Friday in a friendly soccer competition.

On Saturday, they shared in a joint celebration of a significant day on the organization’s international calendar, EKS Day, commemorating the founder of Special Olympics, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of the former U.S. president John F. Kennedy.

In the spirit of Special Olympics the Barbados athletes taught their Brampton visitors how to play cricket and the Brampton athletes taught their hosts how to play softball. The Brampton group brought with them equipment necessary to play softball and donated it to Special Olympics Barbados to help the local organization start its own softball program. The athletes also donated their own softball equipment such as mitts and batting gloves to the program.

On the Sunday of their visit the Brampton group had wanted to take a fun cruise on the Jolly Ranger but found out that the ship did not sale on Sundays. However when it was learned that the group requesting the cruise was a team of Special Olympians from Brampton an exception was made and the Canadians enjoyed a special cruise.

The next day included more soccer and meeting more Special Olympics athletes as the Barbados Sports Council bus, which provided the transportation for the whole visit took the group from the Coral Mist Beach Hotel to the Police Sports Club in Weymouth.

Brampton won a close 3-2 soccer friendly with the Special Olympics athletes from the Ann Hill School. In addition to the gift of softball equipment, Special Olympics Brampton athletes also donated personal soccer shoes and shin pads, items much needed by Special Olympics Barbados.

On their last evening before returning home they enjoyed a social evening at the home of Special Olympics board member Dr. Winston Harvey and his wife Dr. Ena Harvey. That included food, entertainment and the singing of Caribbean songs.

Special Olympics Barbados to Host Two Visiting Groups from

Special Olympics Ontario

 

When you think of sports tourism in Barbados, Special Olympics probably does not immediately come to mind.  But just as our lovely country is attractive to cricketers, footballers, golfers and surfers worldwide, it is also becoming a place where athletes with disabilities feel very comfortable in our warm hospitality. During the month of October, two Special Olympics groups from Canada will visit Barbados.

 

From October 8 through October 15, Special Olympics Barbados will host a delegation of 19 persons from Special Olympics Brampton, Ontario. The group, which consists of 10 athletes, 5 coaches and 4 parents, will take part in a number of activities while here, including a tour of the Challenor Creative Arts and Training Centre, friendly football matches involving the Brampton athletes and Special Olympics athletes from Challenor and the Ann Hill School and a joint celebration of EKS Day (Eunice Kennedy Shriver Day).

 

EKS Day, observed worldwide, commemorates Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, the sister of late U.S. President John F. Kennedy. In the EKS Day observance, athletes from Special Olympics Barbados will teach athletes from Special Olympics Brampton how to play cricket, and the Brampton athletes will teach Barbados athletes how to play softball. The full schedule of events, with venues and times, is listed below. Special Olympics sports events are free of charge, and the public is encouraged to come out and cheer the intellectually challenged athletes from Barbados and Canada.

 

On October 17, Keith Boyce, Special Olympics golf coach from Special Olympics Mississauga, Ontario, returns to Barbados with two of his accomplished Special Olympics golfers, Aaron Lindsay and Arthur Rea, Jr. . Mr. Boyce is the impetus behind the current Special Olympics Barbados golf programme. In 2012, Keith Boyce, along with Aaron and Arthur, conducted a golf clinic, which started the local Special Olympics golf programme. He is also responsible for supplying most of the golf equipment which is used by Special Olympics Barbados.

 

The fine golf facilities in Barbados, which have always been a major force in sports tourism, have been very generous in their support of Special Olympics. Twice a week, the Barbados Golf Club hosts practice sessions for Special Olympics athletes. In addition to visiting the Barbados Golf Club while they are on the island, Keith, Aaron and Arthur will be playing golf at the Apes Hill Golf Club and the Royal Westmoreland Golf Club, compliments of those facilities.

Special Olympics Visitors from Brampton, Ontario

Enjoy a Great Week in Barbados

 

To quote one of the visiting athletes, “Every day gets better and better!” As Special Olympics Barbados hosted a 19-member delegation from Special Olympics Brampton, Ontario, our nation extended a very warm welcome and made some new and lasting friends. The group, which consisted of 10 athletes, 5 coaches and 4 parents, spent an action-filled week getting to know Barbados and Barbadians.

 

Their seven days began last Wednesday with a media-covered arrival at Grantley Adams International Airport. The next day, they toured the Challenor Creative Arts and Training Centre, meeting many of the Special Olympics Barbados athletes they would face Friday in a friendly football competition.

 

On Saturday, the visitors shared in a joint celebration of a significant day on the organisation’s international calendar, EKS Day. EKS Day commemorates the founder of Special Olympics, Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of late U.S. President John F. Kennedy. In the true spirit of Special Olympics, the Barbados athletes taught the Brampton athletes how to play cricket, and the Brampton athletes taught the Barbados athletes how to play softball. The Brampton group brought with them all the equipment necessary to play softball and donated it to Special Olympics Barbados to help the local organisation start its own softball program. Softball is a baseball game, which uses a large baseball thrown underhanded.

 

Barbados again showed its wonderful hospitality on the following day, when the Brampton group, which had planned for a fun cruise on the Jolly Roger, discovered that no Sunday cruises were scheduled. Learning that the group requesting a Sunday cruise was the visiting Special Olympics delegation from Canada, the pirate ship opened its boarding planks, and the Brampton visitors were off on a cruise scheduled especially for them on the Jolly Roger.

 

Monday was a day for more football and meeting more Special Olympics athletes, when the Barbados Sports Council bus, which provided transportation for the entire visit, took the group from the Coral Mist Beach Hotel to the Police Sports Club in Weymouth. The Brampton team played and won a closely-contested, 3-2, friendly match with Special Olympics athletes from the Ann Hill School. In addition to the gift of softball equipment, Special Olympics Brampton also donated some much-needed football gear to Special Olympics Barbados.

 

On the last evening before their return to Canada, the visitors enjoyed a social evening as Special Olympics board member Dr. Winston Harvey, and his wife, Dr. Ena Harvey, opened their home. The Brampton guests, along with Special Olympics Barbados athletes and board members, were treated to sumptuous food, good company and great entertainment, as all joined in Caribbean song with Dr. Ena Harvey.

 

On this Friday, Special Olympics Barbados will welcome another delegation from Canada. Keith Boyce, Special Olympics golf coach from Special Olympics Mississauga, Ontario, returns to Barbados with two of his accomplished Special Olympics golfers. Mr. Boyce is the impetus behind the current Special Olympics Barbados golf programme.
