ATHLETES

 

Having fun, developing skills and building self-esteem, all while participating in year-round sports training and competition is the life of a Special Olympics athlete. Whatever their age or skill level, with 30 sports to choose from, Special Olympics has something for every person with an intellectual disability.

 

Special Olympics athletes are the heart of our movement. Special Olympics practices and competitions happen 365 days a year in more almost 180 countries. With the opportunities to excel and have fun come the associated benefits of improved health and self-image.

 

 

Volunteers

 

Special Olympics would not exist today — and could not have been created — without the time, energy, commitment and enthusiasm of people just like you, thousands of individuals who choose to take a little time from busy schedules to make the world a better place.
