It's Been a Tough Road for Special Olympics Powerlifter

If this were a typical sports story, the headline might read, “Englewood man wins state powerlift, looks to regionals.”
Robbie Dixon's story is a bit deeper than that. It started when he was in his mother's womb, and two chromosomes split, leaving him with Down syndrome.
At the time, Robbie's diagnosis unnerved Tim and Dorann Dixon, who already had three entirely healthy children. As they learned, it could happen to anyone.
It's what happens afterward that really counts.
