Four Special Olympics athletes were given the opportunity of a lifetime by being part of a truly historic event at the opening of the new National Stadium in Warsaw 100 days before UEFA EURO 2012 gets underway.
The athletes received a standing ovation as they walked out onto the pitch carrying the Special Olympics flag as part of a special ceremony just before kick-off in the game between Poland and Portugal to mark the opening of the new stadium in Warsaw.
The stadium was packed to capacity with 58,000 spectators and a staggering 8.5 million people watched on TV. The match finished with a nil-all draw !
