Especially interesting are the Unified Kata Competitions in judo. Unified Sports® brings together athletes with an intellectual disabilities and Unified partners without intellectual disabilities in one team.
In Unified Kata, the team practices throwing techniques and forms together during training. On site at the competition, the rehearsed is presented and evaluated with points. It is very nice to watch and underlines that Special Olympics is not primarily about winning, but about togetherness. A visit is definitely recommended.
