(ABC 6 News) -- They've traveled across the country and now the National Junior Disability Championship is here in Rochester. The group Wheel Chair and Armature Sports USA is a group of roughly 160 competitors from around the state. Those who compete are either physically or mentally disabled.
It's a full week of heated competition. "I don't want to get cocky, but I’m hoping to break a record in the 400 meter," said track and field athlete Matthew Fertig.
There are 6 different sports competitions throughout the week, one of them Monday was table tennis. “It’s both fun and competitive," said Isac Sullivan. "We go across the county. This year, we're here in Minnesota and we're hoping to develop a legacy here so that we can develop more programs for the disabled in this area," said one of the organizers, Debbie Armento.
