Delegates at the 2015 Special Olympics Europe Eurasia Sports Conference in Dornbirn, Austria.
The 2015 Special Olympics Europe Eurasia Sports Conference took place from October 8 - 11 in the beautiful city of Dornbirn in Austria. Sports Directors from more than 40 countries in the SOEE region gathered to share ideas and create a road map to ensure the development of Special Olympics for the next four years 2016-2020. Two new important partnership agreements were signed at the Conference with the European Bowl Association and the European Powerlifting Federation to provide more opportunities for athletes with intellectual disabilities in the sports of bowling and bocce and powerlifting. Special thank you to Heinrich Olsen, Sports Director at Special Olympics Austria and all the team in Austria for hosting such a worthwhile and successful Sports Conference.
