Special Olympics

The 2007 Special Olympics World Summer Games will be held in Shanghai, People's Republic of China, 2 - 11 October 2007.

I bet not many people even know about the Special Olympics World Summer Games. I didn't!

We all know about the summer and winter Olympics and even the Paralympics.

The Special Olympics (which is allowed to use the word 'Olympic' by the International Olympic Committee) is for competitors with intellectual and/or learning disabilities.

It has been held since 1968.

Today was a busy day at work.
