THIS WEEKEND is set to be full of talent, strength and competition as Special Olympics of Trinidad and Tobago hosts their 33rd annual National Games.

The event will see athletes from over 18 special-needs organisations from across the twin-island republic, including Happy Haven of Tobago and the Tobago Technical Vocational School, compete in aquatics, athletics, basketball, bocce, equestrian, football, powerlifting and volleyball at various venues throughout Port of Spain.

On Saturday, after supporting and cheering on the athletes at their various disciplines, families and supporters can also enjoy live entertainment at the Gala Concert, hosted at the Jean Pierre Complex in Mucurapo, featuring performances by Destra Garcia, Sekon Sta, Ancil Valley and Neisha Guy (the respective 2013 and 2014 Digicel Rising Star winners), along with the Servol Special School drumming team and the Lady Hochoy Penal Tassa Group.

Those wanting to support the Games can come down to the Jean Pierre Complex from 9am. Entry to all disciplines at all venues is free.
