LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Five hundred athletes took to the lanes today for a regional Special Olympics Kentucky bowling tournament Sunday.

Kingpin Lanes hosted the event, which featured athletes from 10 counties surrounding Louisville.

Special Olympics organizers say bowling is their most popular individual sport and while many of the athletes are just out to have a good time, the competition can also get pretty fierce.

"We had a guy not too long ago that bowled close to a 300. We have people that average 180 to 200. They could beat me on any day of the week. It's very competitive," said Amanda Wade of Special Olympics Kentucky.
