Special Olympics Mississippi Athlete
2026 Special Olympics USA Games Athlete Advisory Council Member

Connor Tingle has only been involved in Special Olympics Mississippi for 2 years so far, but he already has had quite the impressive career, and he has loved every minute of the opportunity to compete with his peers. Connor is a dedicated and accomplished powerlifter for Special Olympics, and he is excited for the next USA Games in Minnesota.

My hopes and dreams for the 2026 USA Games are to be able to represent Team Mississippi again with a repeat performance of 2022!

Connor fondly recalls the 2022 USA Games in Orlando as the highlight of his career so far, as he won 4 medals–3 gold and 1 silver–in addition to the opportunity to meet former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow at the event. Looking forward to 2026, Connor is hoping to be able to represent Team Mississippi again with a repeat performance of 2022.
