Besides the commemorations, Special Olympics International chose the Zimbabwe Special Olympics organization to be one of the global pioneers of a new concept of fitness and performance stations with a special focus on nutrition, physical education and hydration.
Several local sporting personalities including Dominic Chungwa of CAPS United and young female motocross sensation Tanya Muzinda were roped in to help motivate, coach and share some of their own experiences with the Special Olympics athletes.
The annual Special Olympics Day was commemorated with a lot of fun and athletes engaged in different activities on the golf course and also interacted with professional and elite athletes.
Special Olympics Golf is a club and ball sport in which competing players (or golfers) use many types of clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a golf course using the fewest number of strokes. The game is played on golf courses that feature a unique design and typically consist of either 9 or 18 holes.
