Badger State Games underway


The 25th annual Badger State Games kicked off in Wausau. Athletes tied up their laces for bowling and took aim in archery today.

But organizers say it's about a lot more than just winning. For these athletes, it's also about the love of the sport. The Badger State Games give many people a chance to show their skills.

It also gets the Central Wisconsin community involved. That's something tourism officials say is key, especially at a young age.

"The Badger State Games are starting to re-generate and growing back up again," Richard Barrett, with the Wausau Visitors Bureau told Newsline 9.

"This is a pretty high level of archery and the competition is good. I like it," Tyler Pecha with the Cadott Archery team said.

The winter games continue through February.
