The 2011 Special Olympics World Summer Games will be held in Athens, Greece, between June 25th to July 4th. In 2004 Greece hosted the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The opportunity to host the Special Olympics World Summer Games - ATHENS 2011, makes Greece one of the countries to have organized the entire range of great athletic Multiple-Sport Events.

Alternating between summer and winter, the Special Olympics World Games are one of the world’s largest sporting events, drawing as many if not more athletes than the Olympics. Every two years since 1968, athletes from more than 100 nations have gathered to celebrate sport and showcase the abilities of people with intellectual disabilities. This prominent world stage brings attention to the Special Olympics movement and helps create positive, sometimes life-saving policy change for people with intellectual disabilities in countries around the world.
