Concord, NC-Darius Robinson will represent North Carolina in the Special Olympics USA Games in cycling. Robinson will compete in the 5k, 10k and 15k bike races in New Jersey on June 14-21.

"It makes me feel terrific and radiant and humble," Robinson said about representing North Carolina in the USA Games.

 Robinson was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3 but he has overcome the odds in life and at the local level of the Special Olympics, where he's won multiple gold medals in multiple sports. Just how successful has Robinson been? It's hard to tell.

"[He's won] quite a few," said his mother Tammy Robinson. "I don't have the number."
