Valdosta - Young athletes in South Georgia are gearing up for the 2007 Special Olympics Spring Games.

The two day event kicks off Wednesday, March 21st at the South Lowndes Complex in Lake Park.

It continues Thursday with a track and field competition at Valdosta Middle School and Mckey Park.

Athlete's from nine counties take part in the competition, and the Olympic Committee is expecting good turnout this year.  "We're expecting 250 athletes plus. We had approximately that many last year and we're hopefully going to beat that record," says Tammy Crosby, from Valdosta-Lowndes Parks and Recreation Department.

The committee is currently looking for volunteers in the area to help run the event.
