HOLMEN, Wis. (WKBT) – Paralympic silver medalist Joe Delagrave visited the Holmen Area Community center on Friday.

Delagrave recently won a silver medal in Tokyo with Team USA’s Wheelchair Rugby team.

“Besides winning the whole thing, it was a great experience,” says Delagrave.

He shared his experience with those who have supported him through his training, as well as a message of making the right choices.

“Choosing how to react to our obstacles, choosing to react in a positive way,” says Delagrave. “A lot of us go through things that maybe we didn’t control or can’t control, but we do get to choose how we respond to it.”

This wasn’t the first time he won a medal.

Delagrave won a bronze medal in the 2012 Paralympic games.
