Special people, Special Olympics

Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to more than 4 million athletes in 170 countries. Special Olympics competitions are held every day, all around the world—including local, national and regional competitions, adding up to more than 53,000 events a year.

These competitions include the Special Olympics World Games, which alternate between summer and winter games. Special Olympics World Games are held every two years. The Special Olympics World Games are often the largest sporting event to take place in the world during that year. The most recent World Games were the Special Olympics World Summer Games, held in Athens, Greece, from June 25, 2012 to July 4, 2011, where the entire country took part in participating.

The next Special Olympics World Winter Games will be in Pyeongchang, South Korea from January 29 to February 5, 2013.
