First Young Athletes Demonstration for Korea

By Helen MacNabb

Special Olympics athlete Dustin Plunkett of USA spots a Young Athletes participant during a demonstration of the program in China.

On February 1, 20 youngsters with intellectual disabilities, plus their parents and teachers, will demonstrate the Special Olympics Young Athletes program in front of a World Winter Games audience. Young Athletes provides movement and sport skill development to children with intellectual disabilities who are younger than 8 years old. This will be the first Young Athletes demonstration in the Republic of Korea. The program can be done by parents at home, by teachers in schools and in other settings because it does not use special equipment and it does not require much room. Learn more about the program at the link below.
