Antoinette Ray, 14, is applauded by a member of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus clown troupe as she lifts a heavy barbell at the PNC Arena on Thursday, Feb. 5, 2015. A group of about 40 visually impaired students Governor Morehead School for the Blind were able to get up close and personal with clowns, animals and some of the performers during a community outreach program the circus provides during their tour. For about 60 minutes the children became part of the circus. As she dropped the weight to the floor she said, "I won the competition!"
