Description [Sydney Olympic Park NSW] : Special Olympics Australia, [2013?] 
1 poster : colour ; 42 x 30 cm 
Summary

Colour lithographic poster promoting Special Olympics Australia, an organisation which caters only to people with an intellectual disability, with a focus on weekly sports participation in local communities. By providing meaningful sports programs delivered within a supportive environment, people with an intellectual disability are accepted and can feel proud of their achievements. For some involvement gives a chance to get active, have fun, make friends and be part of a family. Others enjoy the competition pathways and aim to participate in the Special Olympics World Games which are hosted every two years alternately in both summer and winter sports. The main image is a young woman standing on a gymnastics beam, with a female coach standing nearby. In the background are other competitors and the audience at the competition. The caption at the top in white text, is in a blue banner. Other information about the organisation is in a blue box in the middle left of the poster.
