Mother Nature has wiped out the Starved Rock Area Special Olympics Winter Games.

The games were supposed to happen Saturday at the Bureau County Fairgrounds but Area Director Allison Nichols says its too cold. Over 100 athletes were expected to compete in sports like snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.

Nichols says athletes will be drawn to compete in next month’s state games in Galena.
