Hyannis resident Abby Tetrault recently competed in the USA Special Olympics games in Seattle, Washington, participating in four events total while representing the LIFE community with her usual positivity. She went with the flow, adjusting to last-minute changes with a smile on her face, all while embracing her role.
During the 100 meter dash, Abby placed in fourth out of the nine states. In the 400 meter dash – an event Abby not know she was participating in until leaving for Seattle, but nonetheless embraced – she placed with a bronze medal, coming in third out of a possible nine.
In the 4×100 meter relay, her team came in fourth out of ninth. And finally, Abby secured a gold medal in the turbo javelin! It was an amazing showing for a girl who worked hard with all her trainers and took this opportunity seriously.
All in all, Abby made new friends, was kind and generous to her teammates, and came away from this experience with a whole new set of experiences and skills. Said Abby: “It was exciting and awesome to get to meet people from all over the United States.” She was thrilled to “have the opportunity to show my abilities to the world and my friends and coaches to show I can do it!” Congrats Abby on an amazing week, and thanks for representing this community with such aplomb.
