Special Olympics European Success for Edward

Edward Williams won a full set of medals as part of the Special Olympics GB team at the Special Olympics European Games in Antwerp in September.
Edward leaped to victory by winning a gold medal in the long jump.  He beat his qualifying jump by 2 centimetres – a thoroughly deserved medal. He won the silver medal as part of the SOGB 200m relay team and the bronze for the 100m.
