QUEEN’S PARK – Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett rose in the Ontario Legislature today to commend local resident Jason Gordy on his gold victory at the Special Olympics World Games in Abu Dhabi.
“Jason Gordy is a well-known and top-notch Special Olympics athlete from Norfolk County [and] for the past 25 years, Jason has represented my riding at Special Olympics events across Canada, initially as a swimmer; however now at age 46, he’s a bowler,” said Barrett.
Barrett recognized how hard Jason has trained to hone his bowling techniques and that finally his training has paid off. As the Special Olympics World Games results detailed, Gordy won gold in the men’s singles competition with a final cumulative score of 504 in 10-pin bowling said Barrett in a statement.
“Jason Gordy is not only a bowling champion, he also plays golf, he plays basketball and he’s a junior coach with the swim team. Gordy truly is an inspiration and his contributions are greatly appreciated and respected. Thank you and congratulations, Jason Gordy.”
