He will be representing Queensland in Level 3 MAG.Dominic lives with Down Syndrome, but has never let this interfere with anything he has wanted to do in life. He has been an active member of Special Olympics since he was 4 years old and has trained as a gymnast from around 7 years of age.Dom has worked very hard to once again be selected for the upcoming games. He loves being fit, healthy and strong and loves to show his skills to anyone who asks. He loves a challenge and as he has low muscle tone, this challenge is even greater for him, but he has never let it hold him back.He is very excited to be competing with the rest of the Queensland team in Launceston and canโ€™t wait to show what he is capable of. He is also looking forward to hanging out with many of his friends from other sports. Dom especially loves to compete when he knows his big brother Nathan will be watching! Good luck Dom! #gymqld ...
