Disney World has been called the “happiest place on earth;” where “your dreams come true.” And it certainly held true for our two swimmers who went there to compete at the Special Olympics 2022 USA Games.
Catherine Reed earned a Silver Medal for the 200 free race, and a 6th-place finish for the 100 back race.
Alex Fix won a Gold Medal in the 100 breast event, and a Silver Medal in the 100 back.
Both ladies also brought home a 5th-place ribbon for their 4×50 relay race. Great job, Alex and Catherine! We’re so proud of you. We hope you had the best time of your life!
A special thanks to Coach Mike “ESPN” Reed, who kept all of us fans up-to-date by live-streaming and taking videos of the races and awards ceremonies, and posting them to the Facebook page!
