Bowling Green's Kelly King has qualified to compete on the U.S. Special Olympics Bowling Team in the World Games in Dublin, Ireland next June.

She is one of only four bowlers who made the team, out of 1,000 who competed. Only 13 athletes make up the 2003 U.S. Special Olympics squad. Some 7,000 Special Olympians will compete in 20 sports at 21 venues in Dublin.

Area 5 Special Olympics is raising $4,000 to send Kelly to the World Games. If you would like to donate, call Brent Belcher at 270-393-3249.
