Good luck Mike in Greece

June 17, 2011 - Bennet Goldstein
Marshalltown resident Mike Warren is preparing to fly to Greece next week to compete in the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens. Warren will compete in the 5K and 10K events and is often seen training on the streets of Marshalltown or the recreation trail. I heard his co-workers at Meskwaki Casino were having a special sendoff celebration for Warren Friday. Warren works in housekeeping at Meskwaki.

Approximately 7,000 athletes from 120 countries will compete and Warren is one of only two athletes from Iowa competing. He came away with a gold medal in Ireland in the World Games in 2003, so here's hoping he brings home the gold again. I'll be tracking his progress to let you know how he fares.

Good Luck Mike!
