Barrie Police Honored to Congratulate Canadian Medalists
April 3rd, 2017 - Police & the Community

Deputy Chief Carlson and members of the Barrie Police Service had the opportunity to congratulate Special Olympics Ontario athletes Michael Wimbs and David Whyne.

Together Michael and David represented Canada winning a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal in the downhill skiing events at the 2017 Special Olympics World Winter Games, hosted in Austria.

Jade Irvine represented Canada and brought home a Silver Medal in the 4x100 snowshoe relay event. We had the opportunity to congratulate Jade last week while at Andrew Hunter Elementary School, during the Special Olympics PHAL Sports Festival, which is aimed at getting kids into sports at a young age.

Congratulations and thank you for representing Canada. We are very proud of you!
