    Team Manitoba Basketball Brings Home Bronze Medal at North Dakota Special Olympics Tourney



    The 2014 Special Olympics North Dakota State Basketball Tournament had 460 athletes on 46 different teams competing in Minot, North Dakota. Team Manitoba made the trip over the border to participate in the tournament (top division). Team Manitoba played their hearts out and finished in 3rd place!
    The trip was an excellent practice in preparation for the 2014 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in Vancouver, July 8th – 12th. Head coach Hong Thai was very happy with the experience of the team taking a road trip together and getting some tough competition under their belt.
    “I’m extremely proud of my group! We accomplished a lot at the tournament and it couldn’t have happened without the co-operation of our whole team,” said Thai.
    Team Manitoba came home with a lot of confidence built up after winning their final game of the tournament against the Dickinson Dominators (41-21)!
