East High School Alum and United States Special Olympics Team Member

Sioux City native and East High alum Mitchell Betsworth was named a member of the United States Special Olympics team set to compete in the 2023 World Games in Berlin, Germany later this summer.

Betsworth has been actively involved in Special Olympics for well over a decade, perfecting the art of powerlifting throughout that time.

He'll be competing in his three favorite events at this year's Berlin Games: the squat, bench press and the deadlift.

As he continues to train and prepare, he is simply thankful for the opportunity to do what he loves.
