Introducing Nathan Criteser
Nathan is an athlete from Bend, Oregon, who plans to enjoy every bit of his first USA Games! A senior at Bend Senior High School and set to graduate this year, he is proud of his athletic skills and how well he plays. Special Olympics has improved his skills in every sport and has helped him make friends through Unified sports.
Although he fractured his left arm two years ago playing basketball, surgery has helped him recover well. It’s been a challenge coming through that and basketball remains a favorite sport. He’s working on his dribbling and shooting in preparation for Florida.
Nathan enjoys being a YouTuber, gamer, and filmmaker! He loves math, fim, drawing and painting. He listens to his favorite music – like Imagine Dragons – and likes to make videos and put them on YouTube.
Nathan has an active life, including his job at Abby’s Pizza, school, and working out. With the support of his family along with all his activities, Nathan will be well prepared for the Games in Orlando!
