Angelina Litton arrived in Los Angeles on Tuesday for 2015 Special Olympics World Games. Her and her Special Olympics USA teammates will practice together during the course of the week before taking to the water against teams from around the world. Litton and SO USA Sailing begin World Games competition this weekend. Before heading out to the Games, the Tomball resident expressed what the opportunity of going to these Games means to her.

"Going to World Games and watching the athletes overcome personal difficulties and grow in confidence will be overwhelming," Litton said.

Litton likes sailing, kayaking, mountain biking and swimming.
