Sonora resident Joe Delgado competed in the Special Olympics World Games and walked away with two medals. Delgado won a gold medal in the 4x50 free relay and a silver medal in the 50 free while competing July 25 through Aug. 2 at the historic Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. “It feels great,” said Delgado of winning a gold medal. “Getting the gold medal was the best feeling in the world. It was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had.” For Delgado, being a gold and silver medal winner in the biggest competitions of his life, was the perfect exclamation point for all of his hard work and dedication. “When you have worked that hard for something for so long - nine months of work- it all paid off,” Delgado said. Over 7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches, representing 177 countries flocked to Los Angeles to compete in front of over 500,000 spectators. The World Games was the largest sports and humanitarian even in the world, and the biggest in Los Angeles since 1984.
