Three sport deaf athlete grabs gold in Turkey


WKTV - Three years ago, Elena Ciccarelli helped the Whitesboro girls basketball team win a section title.  She has since played three seasons at Gallaudet University, not just in hoops, but soccer and softball as well, and will be heading back for her senior year soon.

What makes Elena unique, however, is that she was born deaf.  Even more amazing is that she recently captained USA Women's Deaf Basketball's Under-21 team to a gold medal in Turkey.

On Tuesday, NEWSChannel 2 Sports Director Mike Levin spoke with Elena about everything from the tourney to her days at Whitesboro.
