Special Olympics Saskatchewan has just announced the athletes that have qualified to go to the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games in Calgary, Alberta, from February 26th - March 3rd, 2024. 

Special Olympics Weyburn athlete Robin Stelter has earned her spot on "Team Saskatchewan 2024."

Stelter said that, "I'm excited and happy, this is my first time going to Calgary for bowling." She shared that she has put in a lot of practice time to get to this point, including practicing after work.

She said that she is very proud of bowling in the high 200's recently. 

Stelter's five-pin bowling team is comprised of athletes from Humboldt, Muenster, and Swift Current. She will be doing some fundraising over the next few months to help her raise $750 to go to the Special Olympics Canada Winter Games.

In the February Winter Games earlier this year in Regina, Stelter said she placed second in singles, and in March she placed second in singles as well. She was recently in Saskatoon at the Bob Pedde annual bowling tournament, where she placed second in singles and first place with her five-pin bowling team in their division.

Stelter expressed that she wanted to thank her coach, Jo-Ann Paxman, who has, "helped her with her bowling skills." In addition to bowling at the Winter Games in Calgary, Stelter added she is looking forward to making new friends, dancing, and of course, having fun.

Weyburn's Special Olympic Coach Paxman will be coaching the team.
