The Iowa Games is set to begin with the first of three weekends of competition. Spokesman Cory Kennedy says seven sports will be contested this weekend, including a couple of cycling events. There’s par 3 golf, handball and the strongman competition that all get underway.
Ultimate frisbee is also this weekend and the Triathlon competition will be held on Sunday at Easter Lake in Des Moines. He says Triathlon is one of the largest for participation as he says it’s a good warmup for other events.
The biggest of the three weekends is July 12th through the 15th which will include the opening ceremonies.
