Every two years, Special Olympics athletes come together to compete at the Special Olympics World Games. Over 7,000 athletes from around the world will gather in Los Angeles this summer to show the true meaning of courage, joy, and determination. Athletes will be competing in a variety of different sports at venues throughout Los Angeles. Games will feature competitions in aquatics, gymnastics, track and field, basketball, football (soccer) and many other summer sports. Around 500,000 spectators are expected to attend this year’s World Games. The games commence on July 25, 2015 and all competition is free to attend.
