After many years as a Special Olympics New Zealand coach, Jenny Jarvis wanted a new challenge. So she applied to be part of the Special Olympics World Summer Games 2015 management team and was appointed to the position of additional support – this means Jenny will have to step into almost any role, as required.
This challlenge does not daunt Jenny, however, as she has been coaching Special Olympics aquatics for about 12 years. She has also attended three National Summer Games as either coach or head coach for the Horowhenua team.
“This will be my first experience at the Games and I am excited to be given the opportunity to be part of the team. I love seeing people meet and exceed their expectations. To have the chance to assist our athletes to be the best they can, and to achieve to the highest level possible, will be a priviledge.
Is how our athletes all give it a go to the very best of their ability and get such enormous pleasure from their achievements. We should all take a leaf out of that book!
