Smith throws his support behind Special Olympics Victoria
Melbourne Storm Captain and new Special Olympics Ambassador, Cameron Smith, met up with three incredible athletes recently at Storm's home ground, AAMI Park.
Smith spent time with Peter Zapantis, Kieren Johnson Vickers and Meagan Moore, speaking and laughing about many things, just before the three athletes made their way to Athens for the Special Olympics World Games.
Special Olympics Victoria said it was an honour to have the support of athletes like Cameron Smith whose qualities, such as devoted family man, strong work ethic, commitment to his sport, and love of the Australian flag are all qualities Special Olympics strongly uphold as an organisation.
Cameron recalled memories of how as a child he wanted to play rugby league for his country and was willing to work hard, not knowing if he would make it. Similarly, Special Olympics athletes have the drive and determination to try their best at a sport they love regardless of life's adversities.
The Storm captain shared some inspiring words with the athletes.
