Special Olympics Luxembourg is the sports federation that offers all people with an intellectual disability the opportunity to practice an adapted physical activity, to follow regular training programmes and to take part in competitions corresponding to their abilities. Special Olympics Luxembourg is currently celebrating its 40th anniversary. Since 1979, ALPAPS - Sport mat Suergekanner, as the association was called in its early days, has been strongly influenced by the Special Olympics movement, created in 1968 in the United States by the Kennedy family. Today Special Olympics Luxembourg, which is managed mainly by volunteers, supervises some 400 athletes with an intellectual disability, offering a wide range of some 12 sports disciplines with weekly training sessions, sporting events in the Grand Duchy and abroad. Great importance is placed on inclusion through sport with unified teams where athletes with a disability practice the different sports together with able-bodied partners.
