LOCAL athletes James Crossley and Chris Woodhead have won a clutch of medals at the Special Olympics World Games.

The pair took two silver and five bronze medals between them during powerlifting tournaments this week in Los Angeles.

James, from East Morton, and Chris, from Haworth, are part of the 100-strong Great Britain team at the Games, which are for people with learning disabilities.

James and Chris are part of a small squad from Bradford Disability Sport and Leisure competing in the fortnight-long international contest.
