Lor­raine’s close call

Bray People - - News -

IT WAS a close call for Del­gany medal win­ner Lor­raine Whe­lan who last week took three hard-earned medals for ski­ing at the Spe­cial Olympics World Games in Idaho.

On the day be­fore she won her first gold medal an ac­ci­dent on the slope saw the lo­cal woman carted off to the hospi­tal for treat­ment and for a brief mo­ment she wor­ried that her hopes of victory were dashed.

‘Thank­fully it was noth­ing se­ri­ous,’ said her fa­ther Bren­dan. ‘She skied bril­liantly the next day to take gold!’
