Special Olympics weightlifters gathered April 5 at The Firm in Rehoboth Beach for a practice meet in preparation for the Summer Games to be held Saturday, June 7, at the University of Delaware. Local lifters meet two times a week at The Firm to train.

Jon Stoklosa of Newark warms up in the dead lift before attempting heavier weights. He has already qualified for the national tournament.
