Wichita Paralympics star says ring from Athens 2004 stolen

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A three-time Paralympics gold medalist from Wichita wants whoever stole the gold ring he received during the 2004 Athens Paralympics to return the ring.

Nick Taylor’s ring and other items were stolen during a robbery at his Wichita home earlier this month. He told The Wichita Eagle the ring is a symbol of his first Paralympics tennis championship.

Of the three gold Paralympics tennis medals – in Athens, London and Beijing – his first in Athens is special because it’s among few things he has that mark that high point in his life.

Wichita police spokeswoman Sgt. Nikki Woodrow says the robbery investigation is still open and phone calls and Crime Stoppers tips about the incident are welcomed.

Taylor says he’d just like the thief to return the ring.
