ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There's a big event that's happening in Moultrie right now. 

Nearly all the Olympic divers who are about to compete in Rio De Janeiro have competed in their younger years at this event at the Moose Moss Aquatic Center. 

They are hoping to win gold, and the experience they had in Moultrie will be part of what they draw on, when they face the rest of the world.

The young people who are competing in Moultrie now are getting experience and encouragement in their quest to be to future Olympians.

This is a big deal, bringing thousands of people to town, and it's a feather in Moultrie's cap that they have this competition.

WALB will again be carrying the summer Olympics, and we will broadcasting our 6:00 newscast live from the Moose Moss Aquatic Center, as a salute to the event, and as an un-official kick-off to NBC's Olympic coverage.

We salute the Moose Moss Aquatic Center, and invite everyone to come out to watch our live broadcast, at Fourth Street, Southwest, in Moultrie.
