This makes the World Games the third largest multi-sport event in the world, according to the organisers. The World Games take place every two years and this year for the first time in Germany.
The Games focus on inclusion and promote the acceptance and appreciation of people with disabilities in society.
The World Games encompass a variety of sports, including athletics, swimming, football, basketball, tennis and many more. Athletes are divided into different age and ability groups to ensure fair competition.
The Special Olympics World Games are a major international sporting event that brings both the sporting achievements of the athletes and the message of inclusion and participation to the public. They provide a platform to break down barriers, overcome prejudices and raise awareness of the abilities and potential of people with disabilities.
The Special Olympics World Games are an international sporting event organised by the Special Olympics movement. This movement was founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy-Shriver, one of John F. Kennedy's hardest hit, with the aim of enabling people with intellectual disabilities to participate in sports activities.
Today, Special Olympics offers more than five million athletes worldwide the chance for self-confidence, recognition and social participation. The Special Olympics Oath, which emphasises courage and commitment, is central to this sports movement.
