Barb Duncan

Barb has been involved in a variety of sports in Hawkes Bay.

And within Special Olympics she has taken on a variety of sporting roles. As a coach, and Event Manager and as unified player in Bocce. She has assisted in many schools events as a General Volunteer and as an official.

Plus her weekly training usually consists of 3 to 5 sessions, including a training session with her Hawkes Bay Bocce squad; and her goal is to keep her fitness level up to improve both he playing and coaching ability.

In her private life sport plays a major role. As Barb is also a keen a walker, a kayaker, a cyclist and a skier.

So needless to say that Barb brings a lot to the World Summer Games team.

In spare time she also enjoys reading and cooking (you just need to check her numerous Facebook posts that have a food theme as that confirms how passionate Barb is about cooking).

Barb is most proud of being a mum, climbing Mount Ruapehu and Coaching Special Olympics athletes and other unified partners.

Her role models include Fred Hollows, Sir Ed Hillary and her mum. Barb feels she is like her role models as she really enjoys giving back to the community & helping others achieve their goals

If she could change the world Barb would do it through teaching by example, compassion and empathy towards others.

Barb has been thrilled to be involved in Unified Sports because of the involvement of players and coaches, coaching and playing and achieving together side by side.

Meeting the wider SO family and competing with other athletes from other countries is what barb is most looking forward to in Abu Dhabi.
