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.

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.
