After the Queen opened the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games last weekend, today she surprised the athletes with a visit this morning in the sportscentre Den Uyt in Mol

The athletes and gymnasts of the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games were surprised this morning, when Her Majesty Queen Mathilde appeared in het sports centre. She was obviously charmed by the competitions that she attended, and she particularly observed Quinten Bruyninckx very attentively during his vault jump. “It is true that I felt some tension, but I nevertheless feel at home here; I am well surrounded by my friends, family and parents, who are all here to encourage me and keep me focused”, was the gymnast’s comment about the crowd sitting in the grandstand.

After having attended Quinten’s performance, the Queen exchanged a few words with the Belgian delegation. Salwa, a 15 years old gymnast, was proud to show her act on the balance beam, and the shot putter Brecht Ramsdam even succeeded in having a little chat with the friendly Queen. All athletes were extremely proud with this Royal meeting!
