We were there at 8:30 a.m. along with three Husky cheerleaders, Channel 5 News, volunteers and hundreds of athletes. After the National Anthem, the Special Olympics oath “Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” presented by an athlete, we heard the familiar words “Let the games begin!” To capsulize the day’s events, Clark got a gold in the 200m dash, a bronze in the 50m dash, and a fourth place ribbon in the shot put. Phil got two golds in the 100m and 200m dash and a silver in the relay. Clark always takes his medals to church the next day for show and tell. A woman shared with me how touched she was when Clark came up to her and her husband and showed them his medals.
