EL PASO (KTSM) — El Paso Olympians made their way to the starting lines Saturday morning.
The Spring Games of the Special Olympics continued this weekend at the Burges High stadium.
Athletes participated in events including the 100 meter dash, the shot put, and the long jump.
NewsChannel 9 spoke with the excited father of one of Saturday's medalists.
"I was screaming for her and I was screaming for all (the athletes) because when they compete, everyone is a winner," said Roberto Cervantes.
The Special Olympians will be honored during a pregame parade before Monday evening's El Paso Chihuahuas baseball game at Southwest University Park.
