Special Olympics leaves British athletes with lasting memories

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.
