Local athletes to compete in Special Olympics events Saturday

Posted by wlpo on December 30, 2013

You might be sick of the cold and snow but the athletes competing at the Starved Rock Area Special Olympics think differently.

The Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe competition is Saturday at the Bureau County Fairgrounds in Princeton.  86 athletes will compete.  Opening Ceremonies start at 9:45.

Other local athletes will be at a speeding skating competition Saturday in Franklin Park and on January 14 at an Alpine Skiing competition.

Gold medalists will advance to the Illinois State Winter Games in Galena.
