A rowdy crowd of fans, family, friends, and media were at the Edmonton International Airport to welcome home Special Olympic Team Canada Edmonton athletes from their adventures at the SO World Winter Games in Korea. We cheered, cried, laughed, and made a lot of noise. Larry EXPLODED with excitement when he came through those doors!! EPIC!!
He is such a media pro and there was a frenzy of people wanting to interview Larry and Ambyr! Larry won two bronze and Ambyr won a silver medal and we are all so proud of their amazing accomplishments. Larry had to many people to thank and great things to say. I'm sure all the TV and news paper crews were loving it!! Keep your eyes out for CTV, City TV, Shaw, and both St.Albert news papers. There were even some media students from NAIT and I am sure a few more that I have forgotten. WOW! I will post links if they are posted online.
We are so happy to have our big guy home and of all that he has achieved. His story is so inspiring and his joy infectious. We love you Larry!
PS. Larry, Ambyr, and I will be on CTV morning Live around 8:45am on Friday!
