The World Games

Alternating between summer and winter, the Special Olympics World Games are one of the world's largest sporting events, drawing as many, if not more, athletes than the Olympics. Every two years since 1968, athletes from more than 100 million nations have gathered to celebrate sport and showcase the abilities of people with intellectual disabilites. This prominent world stage brings attention to the Special Olympics movement and helps create positive, sometimes lifesaving policy change for people with intellectual disabilities in countries around the world.
