If you were anywhere near the Seven Bridges Ice Arena in Woodridge this weekend, you probably noticed something pretty big was going on there.
The Special Olympics Skating Championships were held there on Saturday and Sunday for figure skating and speed skating.
What makes this a BIG deal is that one of the athletes will be headed to the Special Olympics Winter World Games in Austria this winter.
ABC 7 News says that Tommy Shimoda, who competed this weekend, is one of six athletes from Illinois that will be part of Team USA to make the trip!
Congrats to everyone that competed and lets go USA!
