Chattooga Special Olympics coach Cindy Bickman told Northeast Cobb Patch: "The Cobb County Special Olympics team has worked out at Chattooga for about 25 years. The athletes compete in Special Olympics competitions as well as USA Gymnastics events.
"The team from Alabama that competed this past weekend has traveled to Atlanta numerous times for competition and training in the past several years. The girls who came from Canada are the World Games team that will compete in Athens, Greece, this July. They held their official training camp here to take advantage of the expertise of the Chattooga rhythmic gymnastics coaches and judges. We are fortunate to have Special Olympics friends all over the world."
The Chattooga/Cobb County Special Olympics coaches are Cindy Bickman and Joey Burgess. The Birmingham, AL, team is coached by Debbie Sullivan. Sue Ann Laxton coaches the Canadian team.
