Sport For All: The Special Olympics

Overview

The Olympic Games are often thought of as a contest where people push their bodies to peak physical performance. But human bodies come in many forms - including those with disabilities. While the Paralympics focuses on elite athletes with mostly physical impairments, the Special Olympics is open to those with intellectual disabilities, helping them to achieve their full potential.

This documentary from AMI, a Canadian company promoting accessibility in media, takes a look at the history and the people behind the Special Olympics. Through interviews and archive footage, we see how over five million athletes worldwide are empowered to realize their potential, develop physical and mental wellbeing, and create new friendships.

"You will find as life goes on that you get far more enjoyment and excitement and satisfaction from what you do for other people than what you do for yourself."
