The 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games were held in Boise, Idaho last week. Not surprisingly, Australia did not field a team, but over 2000 athletes from around the world participated.
The Idaho Statesman provided media coverage, including this highlights video, in which many people with Down syndrome are seen to be having the time of their lives. (It might take a while to load).
Many more highlights are available from the Special Olympics Live website.
