As the days wind down to the Special Olympics World Summer Games next month, Jamaica's coaches and athletes are in fine-tuning mode as they plot to rack up the medal count in the United Arab Emirates.
After a recent training session at National Arena, the Jamaica Observer caught up with roller skating team head coach Tanisha Brown.
Brown will have an able assistant in Nigel Davis, multiple medal winner in various sporting disciplines and Jamaica's most decorated Special Olympics athlete.
He has smoothly made the transition into coaching and is eager to lend his experience.
Jamaica did not enter a roller skating team at the previous World Summer Games in Los Angeles in 2015, but before then had won a number of medals in that discipline.
