Ian Tellechea, possibly the only Clay County resident participating in the Special Olympics Indiana’s Summer Games in Terre Haute this weekend, welcomed his own support team to the games.

Members of Clay County law enforcement stopped by to visit with Tellechea at Indiana State University Friday, including Clay County Sheriff’s Department, including Detective Jerry Siddens, Sergeant Jason Frazier, and Deputy Eric Oberholtzer, joined with Indiana Department of Natural Resources Conservation Officer Matt Vossmer as well as spectators Clay County Sheriff Paul Harden and Chief Deputy Josh Clarke.

The officers participated in the Run Unified Relay fundraiser. The event has eight teams, consisting of Special Olympics athletes, law enforcement officers and supporters from various Special Olympics Indiana sponsors, who participate in a 4x100-meter run and other events like a three-leg race at ISU’s Gibson Track.

Ian has had a busy Saturday in track and field events, including:

The 800 meter run at 7:45 a.m.,

Shotput at 10:30 a.m., and his favorite event

Javelin at 5 p.m.
