Hundreds of athletes from across North Dakota are in Bottineau this weekend, seeking Special Olympics glory.
The winter games in the state hold their opening ceremonies this evening at Bottineau Winter Park.

Earlier, dozens of volunteers were busy setting up the grounds where everything from Alpine Skiing to Cross Country Racing will be going on.
One volunteer has been working with skiers for years – and has earned a nickname.

(Cynthia Jelleberg, Special Olympics Volunteer) “I’ve been given the name by the athletes, ‘the go girl.’ Because I say, 5,4,3,2,1, go. So that’s a wonderful name to have.”
(Dwight Olson, Special Olympics Volunteer) “I have always worked with youth – I was a scout leader for 17 years and working with youth is just a fun time. I just enjoy it.”

The Alpine Skiing competition begins at 10 am Saturday at Bottineau Winter Park.
