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.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Inside a radio studio, James Dobson - founder of the conservative Christian organization Focus on the Family - was taping his daily program with a woman who adopted her 2-year-old daughter when the child was a frozen embryo. Dobson, who believes firmly that life begins at fertilization, cautioned his listeners not to be swayed by scientists who say embryos are nothing but "dots." "It's amazing to me how many Christians are coming down on that side," Dobson said.

Donnell Whittenburg rocked back and forth on his feet, his eyes boring into the vault table yards ahead of him as he waited behind the start line. It was Aug. 24, Day 2 of the 2014 P&G Gymnastics Championships at Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, and the 20-year-old U.S. men's national team member was playing catch-up after finishing sixth two nights earlier. So Whittenburg, a Baltimore native who will be competing in the world championships starting Friday in Nanning, China, knew he had to nail a rare vault sequence - so dangerous that it was once thought to be impossible - if he wanted to medal.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- It stands to reason that Kimmie Meissner's unconventional rise to the top of women's figure skating might include some unplanned stops. After winning the U.S. title two weeks ago, the Bel Air teen said she didn't know if she would perform at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships, a competition that has attracted few of the top American women skaters since its start in 1999.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- The thin air and sparse crowd seemed to take the wind out of Kimmie Meissner's sails during her short program last night at the Four Continents Figure Skating Championships. The reigning world and national champion found herself in sixth place after an underwhelming performance that began with a fall on the front end of a triple-triple jump combination and wobbled into her least favorite spin -- the layback. Four Continents Championships Through tomorrow, Colorado Springs, Colo.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Make no mistake, Kimmie Meissner would rather be skating an exhibition tonight than sitting in some fancy restaurant or indulging in a rare chocolate treat.

Morgan was named one of 15 finalists for the 12-member team last week. “I'm really excited about the team.

"We just tried not necessarily to take the 12 best players, we tried to take the guys that were going to make up the best team.

As an economist, I was glad to see a call for evidence based programs that invest in prevention - whether in education, health care, infrastructure or social services ( "A dollar of prevention is worth $7 of cure," May 5). There is indeed a wealth of evidence about what works in each of these areas. It is used far less often than it should be. Unfortunately, too many elected officials are myopically focused on this year's budget instead of making decisions that support long term fiscal and social sustainability.
