Two athletes from Barnstaple and Plymouth have been competing in the Special Olympics in Los Angeles in America.
Daniel Weston from Barnstaple managed to bag a bronze medal in the cycling, whilst Elizabeth Haywood from Plymouth was batting in the badminton.
Ian Payne reports:
Steven Dodd from Plymouth also had success at the tournament, winning two silver medals in the kayaking.
The slogan of the games has been 'Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave."
The event finished last night but it will certainly leave some lasting memories for those taking part.
They're a long way from home, but our Special Olympics athletes are raring to go.
The Games, for sports men and women with learning disabilities, are taking place in Los Angeles - and the West Country is well represented in the Great Britain squad.
Our reporter Ian Payne has travelled across the pond to join them.
Competitors are preparing to fly out to Los Angeles to take part in the Special Olympics World Games which starts in eight days time.
America's First Lady Michelle Obama will be at the opening ceremony along with 80,000 other people.
Cyclist Daniel Weston from Barnstaple will be there as part of the Great Britain team, and is one of the favourites for a medal.
His coach Will Newton, has high hopes for the 22-year-old.
Before Daniel got on a bike at the age of six his severe autism led to behavioural problems that would prevent him from living any form of independent life when older.
He now works part-time at the Barnstaple Hotel and his parents believe it's cycling and swimming with other people that has transformed his life. He's even met the Prime Minister and carried the Olympic torch in Ilfracombe two years ago alongside fellow North Devonian Jonathan Edwards.
Last month Daniel won three silver medals at the Special Olympics GB National Championships.
With 58 days to go, a kayaker who only took up the sport a few years ago is counting down to the Special Olympics and the chance of a gold medal.
40-year-old Steven Dodd from Plymouth is training with his GB teammate, badminton-hopeful Elizabeth Haywood, and the two have become firm friends, as Victoria Davies reports.
The first Special Olympics GB's National Summer Games ever to be staged in the South West are drawing to a close tomorrow.
Organisers have called the Games a resounding success, but challenges still remain for people with learning difficulties.

This video shows the Flame of Hope arriving at its destination - the Opening Ceremony for the Special Olympics National Summer Games in Bath.
The torch has been on a long journey through the country, carried by athletes competing in the Special Olympics.
It was brought onto the stage at the Royal Crescent by competitors from the west country and passed to tennis player Thomas Mellor from Cheltenham who used it to light the cauldron signalling the start of the games.
