Some of us first got together in a room at the stadium. We were selected to be the participants for the South African Video for ‘World Down Syndrome Day’. We rehearsed for a few minutes and then the camera rolled.
Today we meet at the Pilditch stadium for the Tshwane Athletics Games. I competed in long jump, shot put, 800m walk, 100m sprint and 200m sprint. It was fun and I did very well again.
I also like to mingle with people I don’t know and so I tend to make new friends. My mom also says that strange people come to her and greet her because they recognize us from another event.
