N&N: Roxanne Gordon prepares to compete in the Special Olympics

roxanne gordonRoxanne Gordon, a resident of Connecticut Home in Southern Pines, has her sights set on the gold.

She will join two other Moore county residents this summer as they head to New Jersey to participate in the bowling competition of the Special Olympics USA Games.

Gordon began bowling at a very young age with her sister, and has been doing it ever since. She has won numerous gold medals playing in different leagues, and says she is excited to compete in this year’s summer games.

“This is my first trip to New Jersey and I love flying,” Gordon said. She is also hoping to bring a gold medal back home when she returns.

She will be among 227 competitive bowlers, including 48 North Carolina athletes, who will travel to compete in the games.
