The 2014 Special Olympics European Summer games will take place in the whole province of Antwerp, not just the city. This week we’d like to introduce you to Mol, a town in the beautiful region known as ‘De Kempen’.
For the first time in the history of Special Olympics, all participants will get to spend the days before the Games in a real Olympic Village. There they will get to train, have fun and make new friends.
To be an athlete means to be in top physical condition. That is why Special Olympics provides the Healthy Athletes Program during national and international Games, just like the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games.
Timothy Shriver is the chairman and CEO of Special Olympics and as such, he represents over 200 million people with intellectual disablilities from over 170 countries. Tim describes himself as: “Special Olympics Fan in Chief, father of 5, husband of one, brother of many, teacher at heart” and that pretty much covers it all.
Guido Kestens, Executive Chairman of the 2014 Special Olympics European Summer Games 2014, warmly welcomes you to the official SO2014 website.
"The Special Olympics Games are a celebration of the talents of athletes with intellectual disabilities. We, at Special Olympics 2014 (SO2014), call them the ‘Games of the Heart’. We invite all communities to join our world of inclusion and mutual respect, without bias or prejudice."
