The Olympic games came to Tucson for a group of seniors at the Nifty after Fifty wellness center on Wednesday.

The group played volleyball just like Olympic athletes, the only difference was they sat in chairs. 

"It's a great way to get them out there and to enjoy that team camaraderie as well as experiencing the friendly art of competition," wellness coach Gabriel said. 

The SeniorRio games featured an opening ceremony and medals awarded to the oldest player, the most spirited member, and the most valuable player.
