The President of Special Olympics Austria and also the President of the Special Olympics World Winter Games 2017 Mr. Hermann Kröll states:
"With each Special Olympics event people with intellectual disabilities will catch more attention, greater acceptance, enjoy more significant interest and popularity in our society. Unified Sports are new addi-
tions to the Special Olympics programs where mixed teams of players with and without mental disabilities compete against each other on the fields. This kind of team sport has further growth potential and will be one important issue to discuss at the upcoming event.
Among floorball are basketball, handball, volleyball and beach volleyball the unified team sports of Special Olympics. "
