Congratulations to Tianna Zimmerman … Canada’s Special Olympics Athlete of the Year. “Today, she is a Special Olympics World Champion after bringing home gold in the women’s relay and bronze in the 800-metre freestyle from the Special Olympics World Games Abu Dhabi 2019.
A young athlete and relatively new to swimming, Tianna’s confidence grew with her skills in the pool. She progressed from short freestyle and backstroke distances to the 800-metre freestyle, along with the butterfly and breaststroke events. She was determined to learn how to dive and flip-turn as well. She approached every challenge head-on and excelled.
Tianna has not only grown as an athlete, but also in life. She’s been the athlete representative on her local Community Executive Committee and continues to serve as cheerleader and a beam of positivity for her teammates.”
Tianna received her award on November 14th at the Special Olympics Canada National Awards Night in Toronto. We are so very proud of you, Tianna. You can read more about her and the other recipients here.
