Albany -- This weekend 1,500 athletes traveled to Albany to compete in the Special Olympic Fall Games. Saturday they continued their quest for the gold.

Several sports were played throughout the city. Olympians showed off their skills at The First Tee....competing in nine and 18-hole games.

The bocce and softball games continued where they left off Friday. But no matter the sport, the common theme at the Fall Games was fun.

"Bocce is fun, and I like to be around people I know. So, its fun," said Rockdale Rocket member, Kathy Lewis.

"They come out and enjoy themselves and just have fun," said 'Just People' coach Aldo Johnson.

The bocce and softball games will continue Sunday morning at the Gordon Sports Complex.
