THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

Young athletes competed for medals in Thomasville Thursday.

Thomasville High School hosted the annual Special Olympics Thursday morning.

Competitors from Thomas and Grady Counties showed their speed, strength, agility, and spirit in a variety of events.

"Every year we have two opportunities for these athletes to come out and work on their skills and compete. And it's an opportunity for them to compete against their peers and show them how quickly they can run and how far they can toss that softball," said YMCA Branch Manager Greer Cox.

The ceremonies began with performances by the Thomasville High School band and dance team.
