Some Oklahoma Special Olympic Athletes had a great send-off Friday.

The sixteen athletes and four coaches are heading to Siloam Springs, Arkansas, for training for the 2003 World Summer Games.

They will be training for the next week in events like aquatics, handball, and equestrian events and power lifting.

Next summer's games will be the first time the World Games will be held outside the US.
