Local Special Olympian works towards Idaho games

A local Special Olympic figure skater is gearing up for the World Winter games in February.

16 year-old Darlene Jakubowski spent the past weekend in Alliston, Ontario, where she was at the second Team Canada training camp of the season, in preparation for the upcoming World Winter Games, which take place in Boise, Idaho, next February.

Jakubowski came home with two gold medals for her efforts, one for her Hoedown in the Ice-Dance category, and one for her Technical Solo.

Jakubowski trains twice a week at the North Peace Arena, as well as training with the Dawson Creek figure skating club during the week. On February second, that training will come to a head, as she leaves for Vancouver, to join her Special Olympic teammates, and pursue her ultimate goal.

The World Winter Games begin in Idaho on February 6th, 2009.
