COLUMBUS—State Representative Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) this week presented a resolution to Special Olympics USA athlete Maggie Hunt, honoring and congratulating her for her medals at the 2018 games in Seattle. As a first-time USA games competitor, Hunt earned a bronze medal in the 100 meters, a gold in the 4x100 relay and a gold in the 400 meters. Also on hand to present a resolution was State Senator Randy Gardner (R-Bowling Green).

Hunt, a resident of Perrysburg, has participated in Special Olympics since she was 8 years old, and practices three times a week at the Bowling Green State University Rec Center.

“Maggie is an inspiring individual and is really motivated to succeed whether it be on the track, in the swimming pool or at her job,” Gavarone said. “I am excited to see what she accomplishes next!”

Hunt was selected after participating in qualifying state games at the Ohio State University and landing in the top three. In addition to practicing, she holds positions with the BGSU grounds crew and Carranor Hunt Club.
