As Tennessee athletes returned home from the Special Olympics World Summer Games in China, family and friends greeted them with cheers of "USA! USA! USA!" as well as a few tears. "It was pretty hard but it was all worth it," said runner Morgan Smith, 18, who won two medals: gold and bronze. "I said to myself: 'It doesn't matter what place I get.' It's one-in-a-lifetime opportunity." The Tennessean (Nashville)
