Other than family members, few people grow closer than teammates. Somehow, that common pursuit against the odds, that shared moment of victory or defeat, brings even the most diverse people together.
Special Olympics Unified Sports® brings together athletes with and without intellectual disabilities- people of similar age and athletic ability – who train and compete on the same teams.
In Montana, more than 100 people are currently involved as Unified Sports® partners. They join their teammates with disabilities in a variety of 13 Unified sports offered by Special Olympics Montana. Unified athletes build their bodies, sharpen their skills, challenge the competition and have fun, too. It’s a physical workout that builds friendship, character, leadership and inspires greatness in all who participate.
