Hetty Bartlett selected for the 2019 Special Olympics World Summer Games

Special Olympics Suffolk is proud to announce that Hetty Bartlett is one of two Suffolk athletes to be selected to represent Special Olympics Great Britain (SOGB) in the 2019 World Summer Games which will be held in Abu Dhabi from 14th to 21st March. Hetty will compete in the 200m, Long Jump and 4 x 100m relay. Similar to the Olympics, this is the pinnacle for athletes with an intellectual disability to compete and achieve on the world stage

Hetty, who lives near Cratfield in rural Suffolk, has competed in numerous Special Olympics and able bodied competitions across the country over the past few years. Her qualification for SOGB selection was achieved through medal winning performances while representing the Eastern Region at the 2017 SOGB National Summer Games in Sheffield. At the Games she won gold in the Long Jump, silver in both the 100m and 200m was also a member of the gold medal winning 4 x 100m relay team

This is the first time that Special Olympics Suffolk will be represented at the World Summer Games. Great credit is due not only to Hetty but also to her coaches and family who have provided her with the necessary support over the years. A just reward for hard work combined with undoubted talent

Hetty, her family and friends are now faced with raising the necessary funding to cover costs of getting there and competing in the Games. She has set up a Virgin Money Giving fundraising page on which donations may be made directly through the following link

Alternatively individuals, organisations or businesses wishing to contribute through other means or to have an informal conversation may make contact through her father Chris either via Email at or phone 07582080701

This will be a life changing experience for Hetty and an opportunity for her to realise her dream of representing GB at the highest level. Any donation which you may be able make will be greatly appreciated by Hetty
