Special Olympics athletes in Estonia have answered the Be Active call to action from the European Union in serious fashion! More than 100 athletes took part in a Unified floorball tournament in Tartu, Estonia as Special Olympics kicked off European Week of Sport celebrations all over the region. The tournament was a true testament to what sport really is, in its true meaning. In addition to students from six Special Olympics Unified schools, a group of Estonian celebrities ranging from government representatives to famous TV stars participated in the matches. Special Olympics athletes showcased the importance of sports and being active throughout the tournament. Special Olympics Estonia’s leadership couldn’t agree more to the power of sport as a mechanism to not only increase health benefits of individuals but also support social development. Special Olympics Estonia patron Hannes Hermaküla even thinks that “European Week of Sport should be 52 weeks of the year as one isn’t enough!"
