MOUNT VERNON — She’s back in the USA and now she’s a medalist.
Mount Vernon’s Carol Fitzsimons has come back home from the World Transplant Games in Göteborg, Sweden, with bag full of souvenirs, a boatload of stories and a Bronze medal.
The last item was the most unexpected.
“I wasn’t expecting to do that well,” said Fitzsimons, who waited until the last possible moment to sign up for this year’s games. “I wasn’t nearly as well-trained as I usually am.”
