Every athlete, no matter what his sport, must reach beyond his capabilities if he or she is to excel. For no person is this more evident than for Robert Allan.

Robbie’s dedication and effort had to be single-minded as he strove to be a champion. Robbie achieved his goal in the 1990 Special Olympics held in Vancouver, British Columbia where he earned a Gold Medal for Senior Men’s Doubles Ten Pin Bowling, plus a Bronze medal for Team Ontario. He has also been awarded a team Gold Medal, competing in the 1989 Ontario Special Olympics Provincial Games held in Toronto.

Robbie is a determined young gentleman who delivers papers and assists at the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture. He still actively participates in Ontario Special Olympics programs and sports.

Robert Allan has brought honour to himself and to the City of Niagara Falls.
