Special Olympics Kicks Off In Greenville

Special Olympics

The South Carolina Special Olympics State Fall Games got underway Saturday morning in Greenville.

The event is bringing together 1,100 athletes, 250 coaches, and hundreds of families, caregivers, and volunteers.

Athletes compete in Bocce, Bowling, Golf, Disc Golf, Tennis, Volleyball, Flag Football, and Soccer.

Even the rain couldn’t stop the events.

“You can’t dampen our spirit,” said Barry Coats, President of the South Carolina Special Olympics.

“We have every sport still going on, some of them that were outdoors are now indoors. We just adapt.”

Many games were moved inside J.L. Mann High School in Greenville.

The closing ceremony will be held Sunday night at the TD Convention Center.
