It’s not every day someone gets to come home draped in medals and is able to call themselves a champion. For Carrollton’s Michelle Barnes, however, that’s exactly what she did as she returned from the USA Special Olympic Games in Seattle, Wash.

While there, Barnes won a gold medal in singles bowling, a bronze medal in doubles bowling (alongside teammate and Elizabethtown native Kelly Kunisch) and finished fourth in the four-person Kentucky team bowling competition.
