I received a call at home from Paul's mother last Saturday, telling me that he won a gold medal at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in South Korea. There is a brief write-up in the local newspaper that Paul beat out an Austrian and an American in the Men's Figure Skating Singles Level 3 category. It is hard to find much information about it online, I guess that this sort of thing does not make it far in the mainstream media, even locally. But in my admittedly biased opinion, it should.

They have just arrived back in Vancouver today, and Paul and Mary Ann should be arriving back here in Halifax tomorrow. I would like to say on behalf of myself, and anyone who would care to join me, heart felt congratulations to both Paul Jocys and Mary Ann Crowley. You have done great, and made us all proud, particularly those of us who know you.
