Viking resident Chris Sutter will be competing with Team Alberta in the 2014 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games in Vancouver, where he will represent for Team Camrose in Five Pin Bowling.
Sutter says he began bowling with Camrose last year, after moving from Calgary. “I like bowling ‘cause you are with friends,” says Sutter, “and you can compete with them and your own score.”
Sutter began bowling when acquaintances told him how much fun it was, and he equates his competitive spirit to watching family members play sports.
“I watched my dad, brother and uncles all play or coach hockey,” he says, “I like to win and so do they.”
Sutter has received gold medals in both floor hockey and bowling in Calgary, and also enjoys playing golf and participating in rodeo.
He says he is looking forward to the competition in the summer.
“I like I like going with the team, it is fun,” says Sutter, “I sometimes get nervous but the coaches help.”
The Special Olympics Canada games will take place from July 7 – 13, 2014 in Vancouver.
