The 2013 Special Olympics World Winter Games will be held from 29 January – 5 February in PyeongChang, Korea. This multi-sport event will be one of the largest sporting events held in the world in 2013. Every two years, thousands of Special Olympics athletes worldwide come together to showcase their athletic skills and celebrate the spirit of Special Olympics. Alternating between Summer Games and Winter Games, Special Olympics World Games bring public attention to the talents and capabilities of people with intellectual disabilities, helping to change attitudes and break down barriers that excluded them from the mainstream of the community.
