Three years ago, Senior Airman Gideon Connelly decided to have his left leg amputated below the knee. On Thursday, Connelly ran the 200-meter dash in 29.4 seconds. The 25-year-old Dundalk resident was one of 200-plus participants to compete in last week's Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, an adaptive-sports competition founded in 2010 for wounded or ill service members and veterans like Connelly, whose recovery from a 2011 motorcycle accident trumps anything he has done in the wake of it. "It's great watching these wounded warriors get together to compete for all these medals," Connelly said.

Doty, who worked at the base, leaped into action after observing the crash on a monitor at the base's joint operations command center.
