Special Olympics basketball tournament

FRESNO, Calif. 28 teams from all over the valley participated in today's Special Olympics regional basketball tournament.

The athletes have different ability levels, but today they showed they all know how to work as a team.

"They are so talented. People with special needs have so many abilities, that people just don't realize how special they are, just as human beings. So just come out and watch and enjoy, it's so much fun," Dorreen Roth said.

Teams from Fresno, Merced, Madera, Tulare, and Kings Counties participated in Saturday's tournament and the training and competition is completely free of charge.
