MARTINS CREEK, Pa. – Albert and Vicki Piccotti from Martins Creek danced their way to victory at the 2022 Transplant Games of America. Representing Team Philly, the pair took home five gold medals each in the ballroom dancing competition.
“They don’t just hand them out. I mean, we got the score sheets so we know what they scored us,” said Vicki.
The pair also won two medals in cornhole and two medals in pickleball.
The Piccottis took part in the Transplant Games because they’re transplant recipients.
Vicki’s had three cornea transplants since 2011 and Albert received a tissue graft to complete his shoulder reconstruction. They joined dozens of other recipients and donors at this year’s competition in San Diego.
