A Flint-area Special Olympics team competing in this week's World Games in Los Angeles has been highlighted on ESPN.

Players from the Area 13 men's volleyball squad from the Greater Flint Region will be among the 7,000 international competing in the 2015 World Games set to get underway on July 25th. ESPN highlighted the story of the team's coach, Shelia Gafney, along with a number of players on the team. As ESPN says, for Gafney from Grand Blanc, "family and teammates are one and the same."

The video is brief but the story (linked above) is a reminder of the good in the Flint area. Let's all cheer on the team, and its coaches, as they compete among the world's best later this week!
