About This Project
Kiera has represented Great Britain in the Special Olympics World Games (Abu Dhabi 2019) where she won 3 gold medals in cycling. The Special Olympics World Games are the world’s biggest sports event for athletes with learning disabilities (LD), taking place every four years and this year included representatives from over 190 Nations participating.
She has also been selected to represent the country again at the INAS Global Games in Brisbane (October 2019) where she hopes for success in defending her titles. Kiera will compete in the INAS road racing, individual and team road time trial events and for the first time in Brisbane, it will include track cycling; Kiera will therefore be competing in a total of six different cycling events.
Kiera has also used her success to become a positive role model and visit schools to promote Sport for children and young people with LD and also offers training to Early Years children. In addition, she has achieved swim teaching qualifications, skills which she uses at a swimming club for Special Olympic swimmers.
The Trustees, having assisted Kiera on previous occasions, were pleased with her success and her dedication to promoting sport among young people in Bolton, they awarded her a grant of £1,600 towards the costs of competing in the forthcoming INAS games in Brisbane.
