Madalina Marin represented Romania at the Special Olympics World Summer Games that opened on 25 July, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. Madalina is 25 years old and she learned how to swim five years ago. She competed in three categories: crow, backstroke and relay race. At home she has dozens of medals she acquired along the years, and she was sure she would come back from US with at least one more. “I’m going to win”, says Madalina. Madalina won the silver medal in the 25m backstroke at the 2015 World Summer Games.
