Joe was part of the three-member U.S. team, and had hoped for bronze in this event, his wife said.

"There was stiff competition," she said. "He is ecstatic with two medals!"

The 43-year-old Aurora native and father of three lost his right arm and left kneecap in a construction accident 18 years ago, and was told he would have trouble walking again.

Berenyi will compete in two more events in the Paralympic Games.
