Palmerston North based Shona McGahan has been involved with Special Olympics Manawatu for approximately 17 years, first as a parent watching her daughter swim, then as a member of the local committee.

 She is Treasurer for both Special Olympics Manawatu and the Special Olympics Lower North Island Regional Council. Shona was Head Swimming Coach at the 2009 National Summer Games, AHOD for the 2013 Asia Pacific Games in Newcastle, Australia and AHOD for the Manawatu team at the 2017 National Summer Games.

 “The position of Head Coach Athletics is a new challenge that I am happy to accept. While I enjoy all aspects of my involvement with Special Olympics, I am at my happiest when going to an event with our athletes and watching them achieve their very best on any given day. As Coaches we have the privilege of being a part of nurturing the talent and sharing the successes. How lucky are we? I see the World Summer Games as the pinnacle event for Special Olympics and will do my absolute best to prepare both myself, and our six athletes for this amazing experience.

The oath says it all for me.” Shona says.
