Oscar Stace

The thing that excites Oscar Stace the most about becoming a Global Messenger is the opportunity to spread the word about Special Olympics and get more people involved.

The 32 year-old Special Olympics Wellington athlete has been involved with Special Olympics for about ten years and has been to three National Summer Games to compete in swimming, and to the Trans-Tasman Games in Hamilton in 2016. He has recently become more involved in promoting Special Olympics and has spoken to local schools and organisations including Wellington City Council.

Oscar has also been a volunteer with Cloud 9 Teen Club and Saturday Kids Club since 2009 and is a member of People First Wellington. He is a sports fanatic (particularly cricket and rugby) and enjoys going to the gym, as well as following news and politics. He's very proud to have met Jacinda Ardern and had a photo with her!

“Special Olympics keeps me active and gives me something to do. It has taught me how to be a better swimmer and has helped me with listening and behaving. I also have some very good friends I met through Special Olympics and have had lots of new opportunities like travelling to different places,” Oscar says.

“Special Olympics has given me a lot, so this is a way of giving back.”
