The ABC Spartans is a group of Special Olympics athletes who have found a love of Power Lifting. One of the first things you learn when you get a chance to spend time with the athletes of the Special Olympics is they can do anything. When the training of the coaches comes together with the passion and drive of athletes like Matt AKA "Muscles" all sports are within reach including Power Lifting.

Matty "Muscles" and the rest of his team will be lifting in their first competition this Sunday at ABC Fitness in Latham starting 10 am. Coach Chris and the rest of the coaches wanted to make sure the team would be ready when they get a chance to compete in future games so they set up this competition. The team is asking for a $5 donation to support Special Olympics of New York. The big thing is if you want to see a group of athletes that truly compete for the right reason and show great sportsmanship this is a must see for you.

Listen to Matty "Muscles" and Coach Chris from today's show here.
