WENATCHEE — One day, Danny George and Mason McRae want to be Olympians like some of their bigger friends. Like basketball player Duane Gaddis, or ice skaters Chris Amerson and Michael Elliott. Danny and Mason, both 9, will be on the sidelines this year when the Washington State Winter Special Olympics are held this weekend. They’ve been training with some of the older athletes who will compete Saturday and Sunday, but aren’t quite ready for competition themselves. Both of the Wenatchee boys have Down syndrome.
