As a Special Olympian whom competed at the Special Olympics World Summer Games three times as a Powerlifter, including 1999 in North Carolina, 2007 in Shanghai, and 2011 in Athens, I can tell you from my experience that competing at the Special Olympics World Games is comparable to the NFL Superbowl, NHL Stanley Cup, WWE Wrestlemania (though its fake), Paralympics, or even Olympics as these athletes are among the world's best. I known Jeremy since the 1999 Special Olympics World Summer Games in North Carolina, and I can tell you he works very hard at any sport he does, including Swimming and Snowshoeing. Best of luck Jeremy at the 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang. Newfoundland and Labrador rocks.
