Did you watch the 2016 Olympic Games?
We watched several events and really enjoyed seeing the athletes compete. I think my favorite event was Rhythmic Gymnastics. It's hard to choose because they were all so interesting.
Did you know that there are Olympic Games for people with disabilities?
Those games are called the Paralympic Games, and you can read all about it here.
The Paralympics are different than Special Olympics.
In the Paralympic Games, athletes are not intellectually disabled, only physically disabled. Both programs are wonderful, but I hear more about the Special Olympics, and I wanted to make sure the Paralympic Games got a bit of attention also.
Goal Ball is a game especially for people with visual impairments.
Here is the link to the Rio Paralympic Goal Ball games. You can see a video of people playing. It's very interesting to see, and I hope you enjoy it.
