For people with intellectual disabilities, the benefits of Special Olympics include: Improved physical fitness and motor skills Greater self-confidence A more positive self-image Lifelong friendships Special Olympics athletes carry these benefits into their daily lives at home, in the classroom, on the job and in the community.
