Seeking to cast light on the potential of persons with intellectual disabilities, Special Olympics Nippon offers such people year-round training in a variety of sports, and opportunities to compete in games, allowing them to demonstrate their achievements. In January 2013, the Special Olympics Nippon Foundation will send a Japanese team consisting of 85 athletes to compete with intellectually disabled athletes from around the world in the quadrennial Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. We support the social participation of athletes with intellectual disabilities in the field of sports.
