Special Olympics Athlete Oath
Let me win.
But if I cannot win,
Let me be brave
In the attempt.

In the photo, a Special Olympic athlete is attempting a short put in the previous meet at Sabah State Stadium.

The following paragraph is the actual introductory text of Special Olympics from its website.

Special Olympics is an international organization dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual disabilities to become physically fit, productive and respected members of society through sports training and competition. Special Olympics offers children and adults with intellectual disabilities year-round training and competition in 26 Olympic-type summer and winter sports. There is no charge to participate in Special Olympics.

Special Olympics currently serves more than 1 million persons with intellectual disabilities in more than 200 Programs in more than 150 countries. In 2000, Special Olympics made a bold commitment to reach 2 million athletes by the end of 2005, placing a renewed focus on building the movement's infrastructure and establishing tools to facilitate growth. An initial census of athlete participation conducted in that year established a baseline count of athletes worldwide.
