Special athletes shine on ice

Posted

On March 25, Special Olympics figure and speed skaters dazzled judges with their grace, balance and joy. The state championship was held at the South Suburban Ice Arena in Centennial.

Alexa Barricklow, in the 22 to 29 age division, enjoyed showing her speed and accuracy in the level five and six compulsory figure skating round, the most advanced division in the competition.

“When I am on the ice, I feel happy and confident,” the Centennial resident said. “I’ve always done a lot of sports. I’m looking forward to the ice skating and the awards, too.”

Nearly 50 athletes and volunteers participated in the event.

Special Olympics Colorado provides year-round training and competition in 22 sports for 21,118 athletes with intellectual disabilities living in the state of Colorado. More than 100 events are held annually for athletes as young as 2.
