A Look Back at the Special Olympics 2014 USA Games

The 2014 Special Olympics USA Games was held June 15-20 in New Jersey. The third edition of the quadrennial competition showcased America's true champions. Throughout the week I had the distinct pleasure of covering the events that took place at the Prudential Center in Newark and various other sites throughout Mercer County in southern New Jersey. 

As a whole, the competition was truly remarkable and inspirational. From a well played baseball game to a sprint to the finish in the 50-meter run to a hard fought tennis match, the events were unlike any other. It is very difficult to describe what exactly went on and the surrounding emotion in words, but I believe the piece below does the 2014 USA Games justice.
