Competitors such as Justin Goolsby traveled to MU Recreation Center to compete in the powerlifting event on Saturday for the Special Olympics Missouri State Summer Games. For Goolsby, being a powerlifter in Special Olympics means he gets to compete in front of friends and family, and he has a way to fill his day. "It gives me something to do, keeps me out of trouble, gives me a chance to travel," he said. "It's just beautiful."
