If you couldn't afford to make it to the Summer Olympics in Rio there's a more affordable Olympic competition going on right here in the valley.
 
The 2016 Vienna nursing and rehabilitation Center Olympics is underway in Lodi. Over the next 3 week residents at the center will compete in a foam dart archary challeng, medicine ball shot put, foam noodle javalin and many other senior adapted games. 
 
"I have never done shot put before but I think my main stratagy is throw it as hard as I can." Jone Miller said.
 
Miller may lack experience in Olympic games, but during training she threw the medicine ball 171 inches from her wheel chair.
 
The round of games starts August 10th. Foam Dard Archary and table tennis are on the agenda. The final awards ceremony is August 24th.
 
Stop in during visiting hours to watch the games.
