Linda Simpson, who ran against Fred Finn for a 35th District legislative seat in 2010, received word this week she will be participating in the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo.
Simpson lost most of her left leg in a traffic accident in September. In January she participated in the Wounded Warrior Training Camp in Ventura, Calif., a sort of tryout for the games. She will be doing the discus and shot put for certain and could participate in other events.
If you read Sunday’s story, besides her athletic abilities (which I’m told are ample), she was a heck of a positive influence on the other athletes in Ventura.
She and her husband, Michael, go to Colorado Springs in late April to acclimate to the high altitude. The games themselves are in early May.
