COLUMBUS—State Representative Craig Riedel (R-Defiance) today presented a resolution honoring Krystal Albright for winning the 2017 Ohio State Cycling Championship during the Special Olympics Summer Games this past June in Columbus.

Albright swept all three races making up the cycling event, placing first in the 1-mile, 3-mile and 5-mile races. This is the fourth time that Albright has claimed the top prize in the cycling event after also earning first in 2013, 2014 and 2016.

“Krystal has shown her love for cycling through hard work and determination,” said Riedel. “She is an impressive athlete who lets nothing stand in her way. She has shown strength and has set a standard that all Ohioans can strive towards. I am proud she represented the 82nd House District in the 2017 Special Olympics Summer Games.”

There are currently over 26,000 athletes who participate in Special Olympics Ohio, with an estimated 10 percent advancing to Ohio’s annual State Summer Games.

Riedel presented a resolution to Albright during today’s Ohio House session with her parents, Kevin and Nancy Albright, by her side.
