Our very own Lenexa Warehouse Forklift Operator, Wendell Gaskin Jr, was inducted into the 2020 United States of America Deaf Sports Federation Hall of Fame on Tuesday, October 20th. Before joining Heartland Coca-Cola in 2008, Wendell was a tremendous track athlete and a three-time competitor in the Deaf Olympics. He has competed in the 1993 Sofia Olympics, the 1997 Copenhagen Olympics, and the Rome Olympics games in 2001. Throughout his Olympic career, Wendell has taken home 11 Gold medals, two Silver medals, and one Bronze medal. He also holds three world records in the 100m, 200m, and 400m, which still stand today. We are incredibly proud of Wendell and his accomplishment and happy we could celebrate this well-deserved honor with him.
