Everyone is a champion in Special Olympics

There's one rule at the Special Olympics: Do your best. Do that, and you're a champion.

The New Mexico Special Olympics were held at University of New Mexico in Albuquerque May 30-June 1. Taos fielded several athletes at the annual event. Athletes and supporters came from all over the state. Coaches get times for their athletes at practice, which are used, together with age and gender, to determine the heats at the race and keep the competitions close for all athletes. Some heats are mixed, some are not, but one thing stays the same.

As one spectator put it, "Everyone is already a champion for doing their best."
