Adam Wisnieuski loves to run.
That’s probably why the 9 year old from Dan Mini Elementary School got a first-place ribbon in the 50-yard dash Thursday during the Vallejo Special Olympics.
“Hercules!” Adam said, smiling and flexing his arms after competing in the javelin throw.
Nearly 200 Vallejo and Benicia students attended the event at Vallejo High School’s Corbus Field. Braving the sunny weather, students competed in the 50-yard-dash, the hurdles and the javelin throw (using pool noodles rather than the more traditional weapon). Participants included students from the Vallejo City Unified School District, Benicia Unified and Spectrum School.
