Leroy Sassine was chosen to represent Team WA in basketball at the National Special Olympics Australia which was held in Adelaide from 15-21 April. The team returned with a gold medal. The team of 8 are now being called the ‘Dream Team’ by their peers.
The City of Stirling supported Leroy in his bid to compete at the games and helped sponsor his sporting endeavours with a donation towards the cost of flights and accommodation. Leroy met with the City of Stirling counsellor, Mr Adam Spagnolo, and Mr John Hughes who congratulated Leroy on his wonderful achievement .
