Sgt. Gavin Sibayan, a Colorado native, won four gold medals in the Warrior Games Friday. The U.S. military's first ever Warrior Games are a paralympic-style event where disabled soldiers compete in an array of competitions for medals and to show the world that they can compete and achieve many things despite their disabilities.
Sgt. Sibayan was hit by three EID's while serving in Iraq. He swims with hip injuries, traumatic head injury and PTSD.
I produced this video about Gavin for the Denver Post, you can see it in context here. Please also look at Matt McClain's photos of the games here. Matt's photo's of the track events are beautiful.
