Bio: Tiah Johnson

Unified Sports Partner

Tiah Johnson is a 15 year old defensive player for the Special Olympics Colorado Rapids Soccer Team.  This is Tiah’s first season playing soccer with Special Olympics Colorado and is excited for this new opportunity.  Though Tiah has not played soccer before, she has been involved with athletics and Special Olympics Colorado for several years.  Tiah’s parents began volunteering with Special Olympics at a young age and Tiah began to enjoy it as well.  She has been a volunteer for track and field for several years and is also a member of her high school’s cross country running team.

Tiah has been to Seattle once before and is excited to get to go back.  The aspect of Seattle that she enjoyed most was the rain.  She likes Colorado, but she is excited to experience the wet climate Seattle has to offer.  Tiah says that there is not a specific place in Seattle that she wants to visit, but she is excited to play soccer and watch the Colorado Rapids take on the Seattle Sounders.
