Moultrie - Most south Georgia athletes play baseball, football and soccer, but we found two special Olympians who take their sport to the ice.
The Colquitt County teenagers have already won state and regional gold medals for speed skating, now they will take on the world champions.
The speed skaters have to practice on dry land. Daryll Burks says, "No ice."
Shane Slater and Daryll Burks are Colquitt County High School athletes. Burks says, "Make sure you work out legs and arms so you can get that greater distance."
They are training for the Special Olympics World Winter Games. Slater says, "I've done soccer for Special Olympics, softball, horseback riding and now ice skating. We go to Atlanta once a month to train."
They are two of the three chosen speed skaters from Georgia and they have already won state and regional gold medals, now it's time to bring in a world medal. Burks smiles, "Bring home the gold."
They both have the confidence and speed to win the Winter Games.
The Special Olympics World Winter Games are February 26 through March 5th in Nagano, Japan.
There will be more than 2,000 athletes from 80 countries.
