Going for the Gold
Ninety Special Olympic athletes competed for gold medals in snowshoe competition in Saturday’s Winter Games at the Bureau County Fairgrounds.
All gold medal winners will advance to the Illinois state Winter Games to be held Jan. 29-31 at Chestnut Mountain Resort in Galena. Cross-country skiing competition was canceled due to the shortage of snow and all area competitors automatically qualified.
For Gateway, Becky Nelson won the 100-meters and placed third in the 50-meters, Jennifer Tornow won the 50-meters and took fourth in the 100-meters, Nathan Warren swept the 200- and 400-meter competition.
