And The Gold Goes To…

By Maryangela @maryangelav

And The Gold Goes To…Jackson Memorial Hospital brought a unique version of the Olympics to South Florida.

The power wheelchairs obstacle course, the 30-foot speed walk for patients who are relearning how to use their legs, timed push ups and chin ups. These are some of the competitive events at the JMH Olympics wrapping up this week.

The games took place at Jackson Rehabilitation Hospital, and the athletes are patients with spinal cord injuries.

Therapist Cathy Herring started this four years ago during the Beijing Olympics, and now again with the London Games.

At the end of the week, first place winners get a small golden trophy and there are plastic medals for bronze and silver.

Introducing your 2012 Olympic Gold Champion Mary Vaccaro from the United States with 38 Chin-Ups in 1 minute!
