USA's only 2017 World Games Unified Sports team was also among the youngest to compete – 16-, 17- and 18-year-olds from two different high schools: PS 721 in Manhattan, which serves a diverse student population of students with learning and emotional challenges and/or developmental disorders and/or limited mobility; and Ethical Culture Fieldston School, a private school in the Bronx and a longtime booster of Unified Sports. They came together as a team ahead of World Games, showing everyone what it means to play – and live – unified!
