2018 Special Olympics USA Games!
I've been selected to represent Special Olympics New York in Seattle Washington for the 2018 USA Games in Seattle on July 1st through 6th 2018.

This is just a little about me!
I “El Duderoo” Armstrong like to think that I have Ups Syndrome. I am quite helpful on the homestead, first stacking and then hauling firewood in for 2 stoves all winter, planting, weeding, staking and clearing debris in the extensive gardens, hauling orchard prunings, and doing other landscape work. I enjoy doing yoga which I have done on and off for many years and I amquite flexible and strong. From the help of my parents, work, and exercise, I remaim trim. I started power-lifting only 1 year ago and benefitted from a dearth of other lifters in my weight class at NYS games.
