Special Olympics is the world's largest sports organization for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, providing year-round training and competitions to more than 4.2 million athletes in 170 countries.

 

 

Made in partnership with Special Olympic Belgium.

A family of medals is made for each athlete (the three winners as well as the other competitors).

These medals are meant as in a way of paying homage to the athletes and to their courage. 

As the torchbearer runs the constant movement (“moirage”) and 

transparency of the torch highlights the effort and perseverance of the athlete.
