Special Olympics Nebraska Athletes of the Week

Former Athlete of the Week David Harkey from the Special Olympics Blair team.

It takes courage, strength and determination to be a Special Olympics athlete. To spotlight our athletes who demonstrate these characteristics on and off the playing field, we've created our Athlete of the Week program.

Each week, a new athlete is featured on the Special Olympics Nebraska website, Facebook and Twitter pages. Athletes of the Week share their personal "Gold Medal Moments" with their fans and supporters.

Check out our gallery of former Athletes of the Week below!
