DES MOINES, Iowa -- Eight Special Olympics Iowa teams competed in the 4x100 meter relay at the Drake Relays on Friday.
Athlete Brandon Baier said he was excited to compete because he came to the relays when he was a kid.
"I've been working for, like, the whole year. And it's pretty exciting to be here now," Baier said.
Communications Manager Stephanie Kocer said this also prepares them for other big races coming up later this year.
