Premier Wayne Panton, Governor Jane Owen and Sports Minister Bernie Bush recently met with the delegation to wish them luck before they head off on their journey to Germany.

“As a founder of the Cayman Islands Special Olympics Foundation, I have a special connection to the athletes and the organisation. I wish this year’s team the best as they represent our country, their families and themselves,” said Bush.
