A 24-medal haul for Québec athletes at the  Los Angeles Special Olympics World Summer Games

The 11 Québec athletes on Team Canada brought back 24 medals from the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games.

From July 25 to August 2, some 7,000 athletes living with an intellectual disability from 177 countries gathered in Los Angeles, in the United States, for a week of competition in 25 sports.

Made up of 115 athletes, the Canadian delegation won a total of 144 medals, including the 16 gold, 4 silver and 4 bronze medals captured by the Québec athletes.

Our athletes achieved outstanding performances in the three sports in which they competed: athletics, swimming and bowling.

The entire Québec movement is extremely proud to see these athletes return victorious from this international competition. Their success is a testament to their passion, determination and discipline.
