Albany -- Special needs people from all over the state are in Albany this weekend going for gold.

It's the annual Special Olympics Georgia Fall Games. This is the second year here in the good life city.

Today many competitors hit the greens at Albany's First Tee Golf Course to give their best shot at some medals.

Coaches say their athletes learn a lot from this sport.

"I would say it's a lot of focus and concentration and also team spirit and they learn to play," said coach Sunita Kapur.

"It's good, but it's really cold," said PJ James.

Other sports in the Fall Games include running, walking, cycling, softball, and bocce.

Athletes also got the chance to play games, make arts and crafts, and see some exotic animals today in Olympic Town at RiverFront park.
