An annual and beloved tradition returns as about 30 athletes showcased their strengths at the Protected Harbor Outdoor Olympics.

These athletes participated in team activities and individual competitions such as shooting hoops and cornhole.

“People with disabilities are looked at what they can’t do, so we really want to say, hey, look at us, look at what we can do,” God’s Protected Harbor CEO Sean McLaughin said.

It also gave these athletes the opportunity to be cheered on.

“We’re looking at a population that most of the time is overlooked,” McLaughin said. “When you talk about people wanting superpowers, and I always see people say, oh, I want to be invisible. This is an invisible population. Nobody here wants to be invisible. They want to be celebrated.”
