Today we went to the AZ Special Olympics State Games where Matthew swam 2 events.
Here he's warming up in the pool...
He and his buddy, Chase.
After a long, long while (a couple of hours?) he finally swam his 1st event - 50 meter freestyle.
He did not swim his very best, and ended up in 5th place with a ribbon.
He was not exactly pleased... LOL!
But he did snap out of it! :)
Then after another couple of hours(!), he swam his next event - 25 meter Butterfly
He put the burners on for this one...
And he placed 1st with a gold medal!
