I truly am very proud of my brother, Sam Silver, today.
He was the first member of Team USA to win a medal in this year’s Special Olympic Games in Athens, Greece.
He won a Bronze medal in the 800-Meter Freestyle event; it exhausts me to even think about it.
He has always been a great swimmer, both in swimming pools and his first choice, open water. I will be looking for him in the exhibition Open Water Event on Friday, should I actually find it broadcast or recorded anywhere.
