August 10, 2015

Costa Rica’s record-breaking Special Olympics team was honored with a visit to Casa Presidencial on Monday morning. Athletes won 207 medals — 76 of them gold — in a variety of sports at the 2015 Special Olympics Games in Los Angeles, California.

President Luis Guillermo Solís and Vice President Ana Helena Chacón hosted the decorated athletes in the gardens of Casa Presidencial, where the president said they’ve been an inspiration for the entire country.

“You’re a great example for all of us,” Solís said to the more than 200 athletes in attendance. “With strength, discipline, and dedication, you remind us it’s possible to achieve great feats. Costa Rica thanks you, you’re an inspiration and a reminder that as a society we can accomplish great things.”
