1. Infos about the National Games

The Special Olympics are the world’s largest sporting event

  • for people with ID.
  • for people with multiple disabilities.

 
In 2022, Berlin will host the Special Olympics National Games.

More than 4 thousand athletes

from many countries will come to Berlin.

They will compete in 20 sports.

For example, in handball and powerlifting.

 

And there will be many Unified Sports® competitions.

In Unified Sports®, people with and

and without disabilities compete together.

They have equal partnerships and they learn from each other.

 

We want to achieve different goals with the National Games.

For example:

We want to have more inclusion in Germany and around the globe.

Inclusion means:

Everybody is respected and accepted.

Everybody has the same rights.

 

We want people with ID to be more accepted.

We want to show:

People with ID can do many things.

And they can be coaches or leaders.

 

And we want people with ID to get access

  • to education
  • to work
  • to health care
  • to sports

Our claim and logo

The claim of the National Games is:

Unbeatable together.

This means:

Together we can achieve anything we want.

Nobody can stop us.

 

We invented the claim with our athletes.

We write it this way:

#UnbeatableTogether

 

our logo

We created the logo with our athletes.

Logo Nationale Spiele Berlin 2022

These were our thoughts:

  • All people are different.

    We want to show that through the different colors and shapes.

  • We asked our athletes:

    When you think of Special Olympics,

    how do you feel?

    what do you think?

    They answered:

    We are happy.

    We are proud.

    We are excited.

    We wanted the logo to represent these emotions and feelings.

  • The National Games and the World Games take place in Berlin.

    So, the logo should contain symbols of Berlin.

    For example, the television tower or the Berlin Bear.
