Team Mike out of Fairhope Yacht Club sails home with world championship
LOS ANGELES—Michael Cline and Mike Dominguez (Team Mike—USA-Alabama-Baldwin County-Fairhope Yacht Club) went for the Gold and will bring that best-of-the-best medal home after winning the 2015 Special Olympics World Games Sailing competition in Los Angeles Sunday.
Team Mike defeated Finland 2 (Mari Aamio and Juha-matti Linnajsaari) 19-28 with the overall best time-based score for the Gold. Finland 2 edged out fellow Finns Finland 3 (Saammal Morottaja and Joni Roivanen) in the Division 2 medaling round 28-30.
The 2015 Special Olympics World Games hosted 6,500 athletes and 2,000 coaches representing 165 countries, along with 30,000 volunteers and anticipated 500,000 spectators for the largest sports and humanitarian event anywhere in the world this year and the single biggest event in Los Angeles since the 1984 Olympic Games.
Michael Cline is a special needs athlete out of ARC of Baldwin County and is also a state and national record holder in powerlifting. He has also competed in the 2014 Special Olympics - USA Games in Princeton, N.J.
Mike Dominguez is a Unified Partner for Special Olympics as a sailing coach and has been so for more than six years with FYC. He is a member of Buccaneer Yacht Club in Mobile.
“(Mike) has driven across the Bay after work many times to serve as a volunteer at FYC,” said ARC of Baldwin County powerlifting coach and retired special educator Daryl Haskew. He is most deserving of the honor of representing his state and the USA.”
Team Mike qualified for Team USA by winning the SE Regional Regatta held in Biloxi last summer. Special Olympics offers 30-plus Olympic-style individual and team sports that provide training and competition opportunities for persons with intellectual disabilities.
Only two teams represented Alabama in the 2015 World Games, Unified Volleyball and Sailing. For more information visit: la2015.org.
