Special Olympics Howard County received a visit from some very special guests in March. Thirteen high school basketball coaches from China helped out with a Special Olympics basketball practice held at Bonnie Branch Middle School.
The coaches, from Chengdu and Guangzhou, were in the United States on the Sports Visitors program through the US State Department. In their first exposure to Special Olympics, the men and women assisted the 36 athletes with dribbling, shooting and passing. Several enjoyed the experience so much they intend to get involved with Special Olympics back in China.
