American war hero wins big swimming at the Invictus Games


ORLANDO, Fla.,- An American hero who’s played in numerous softball tournaments in Southwest Florida is taking home the gold at the Invictus Games! You may remember the story of Retired Technical Sergeant Leonard Anderson. An IED exploded just feet away from him in Afghanistan and his combat K-9, Azza, actually saved his life. He lost his left hand and most of his right hand. And today, he earned a gold medal in the 100-meter freestyle swim and a bronze in the 100-meter backstroke! Azza was right by his side as he got his medals.
