STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) - Competition is getting underway at the Special Olympics Wisconsin summer games in Stevens Point.

More than 1,500 athletes are competing in track and field events, powerlifting, aquatics and soccer. Tim Shriver, the son of Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, is a special guest at this year’s summer games.

Shriver is also acknowledging Special Olympics Wisconsin CEO Dennis Alldridge who is retiring after 27 years with the organization. Alldridge says Eunice Kennedy Shriver attended his first summer games as CEO, so it’s fitting that her son is on hand for his last summer games.
