Overview

You might not have heard of the Special Olympics before. As this documentary points out, many people confuse it with the Paralympics. The difference between the Special Olympics and the Paralympics is subtle but crucial. The Special Olympics is for athletes with intellectual disabilities, whereas the Paralympics is generally for athletes with any disability, including physical, and only at an elite level. The Special Olympics Committee puts on the World Games every two years, and provides year-round sports training and athletic competitions for children and adults of all abilities.

Every two years, over five million athletes worldwide are empowered to realise their potential, develop physical fitness and mental wellbeing, and create new friendships. The goal of the movement is to promote inclusion in sport, break down barriers, and end discrimination towards people with intellectual disabilities. The result is a new generation that celebrates all differences and all abilities.
