Spanish National Football Coach Julen Lopetegui was unveiled as the newest Global Ambassador for Special Olympics at a press conference at the Spanish Federation of Football in Madrid. Lopetegui said he is “committed to supporting the inspiring athletes of Special Olympics who represent the very best of sports.” As part of his new role, Lopetegui will lend his support, knowledge, and passion to developing the game for athletes with intellectual disabilities across Spain and Europe. He will also help to drive awareness for Unified Sports and Healthy Athletes. Lopetegui’s appointment comes at an exciting time for Special Olympics Spain as its 52 athletes prepare to compete at the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Austria.
