Ruth & Tyler Charleston Season Highlights

April 24, 2017

Llanelli teenage twins, Ruth and Tyler Charleston flew the flag for Wales at the World Winter Special Olympic Games in Austria this winter. They went there with big goals and did not disappoint! 


The girls came away with a total of four medals between them, including two golds! They were the only Welsh competitors from 3,500 representing 1110 countries from around the world. They overcame a lot of setbacks to get to this stage and Wales is very proud of them!

The girls started skiing with their school, Heol Goffa Special School at Pembrey Ski Slope, which is where they now do the majority of their training, three times a week. Their training also includes endurance cycling rides of 30-miles a week, regular gym sessions as well as skiing with the school and West Wales Ski Club. The girls' handicap of Speech Dyspraxia and global delay has not hindered their ability to ski in any way. Being gold medal winning Olympians is a fantastic achievement for the both the twins and for their foster parents, Ron and Jacqueline Cant and of course their school. 

The twins have big plans for next season. Their success has only made them more determined (if that's possible!) and we're really excited to see what they do with the 2017/18 winter season.
