Special Olympics Manawatu athlete Timothy Rieger is proud to be a Special Olympics New Zealand athlete and is looking forward to “doing his best for the team” at the upcoming Special Olympics 2013 Asia Pacific Games.
“My favourite thing about Special Olympics New Zealand is getting to attend a lot of events, and watching other swimmers and players. The Asia Pacific Games will be a great chance to meet other athletes, and watch us all do our best,” he says.
In training for the Games Timothy has cut back on his favourite foods, sausages, hot dogs, and hot chips, to focus on training. His job moving timber and sweeping keeps him fit and strong too.
