Robert Borner, Jr.

Athlete | Lock Haven, Pennsylvania

Robert Borner, Jr. is a five-sport athlete with Special Olympics Pennsylvania and will be attending his first Special Olympics World Games. He looks up to his coach, Brad Marr, as a role model and believes the world would be a better place if there were no bullying. Special Olympics has taught Robert, who works as a telemarketer at American Customer Care, how to be a good team player and made him much more open to talking to new people. In addition to his day job, Robert helps out at a local haunted house and hopes to keep playing sports until he is 50 years old and beyond. He's excited to represent his country and see new things he's never seen before.
