Meet Adrian Harper who is a 23 year old male.
Adrian has more energy than a power plant. He attends the SOC basketball sessions, badminton sessions and cricket sessions and decided to play basketball at the National Summer Games in 2017 in Sheffield.
Adrian has learnt to be a calmer and more controlled person since he began with LD Active Kernow and SOC and believes it's the sport that has helped him.
Adrian says about Special Olympics: "It's really cool being part of a team where it doesn't matter how good you are or who you are. We have a good laugh but it's also strict training to."
Social impact - Adrian has become even more outgoing since he joined SO. Adrian spends time now thinking about what he eats and keeps himself fit by visiting the gym between training for basketball. Before SO and LD Active Kernow Adrian wouldn't have been confident enough to go to a gym.
