That's what we call Ulises here at home. Ulises is my 13 year old son who has Down syndrome. He loves to swim. It's his passion!!! He is never tired for swimming!!! This May 2013 he joined Special Olympics here in Imperial Valley..He enjoys every event we go to. Ulises participated in 2013 Special Olympics in Long Beach and won a silver and gold medal. We feel very proud of Ulises because we know it wasn't easy!!! It was an amazing experience!!! Ulises is working very hard preparing himself for the 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games in Los Angeles. Ulises is living proof that if you belive in yourself u can go very far!!!!
