The Special Olympics World Games are the world’s largest inclusive sports event. Thousands of athletes with intellectual disabilities compete.
From 17 to 25 June 2023, the Special Olympics World Games took place in Berlin and for the first time in Germany.
It was a colorful international festival of sports, with the aim of achieving greater recognition and social participation of people with intellectual disabilities in our society.
Through the power of sports, people with intellectual disabilities discover new strengths and abilities, skills and success. Athletes inspired people in their communities and elsewhere to open their hearts to a wider world of human talents and potential.
The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
The closing ceremony was held at the Brandenburg Gate where all the delegations celebrated, danced and said goodbye to their friends, getting ready to return home.
The World Boxing Council and its President Mauricio Sulaiman, congratulate in a special way the athletes from all over the world, who represented their nations with honor, strength and love. You are all champions.
The World Boxing Council has the fortune and privilege of being an ally of Special Olympics Mexico for some years now. Their achievements fill us with great happiness, joy, motivation and pride.
