What is the Special Olympics?
The Special Olympics in the UAE helps to train special athletes to take part in a variety of Olympic-type sports.
Children and adults with an intellectual disability or a physical disability are given the opportunities to take part in events and athletic competitions that develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage and helps to instil virtues of joy, friendship and participation.
