It has been a long way from the founding of the international association for sports for people with intellectual disabilities in the 1980s, to participation in the first Paralympics in 1991 with only a few participants, to the current sports program, featuring 15 annual events in which more than 4,500 athletes participate. Through the works of all member organizations VIRTUS, World Intellectual Impairment Sport is offering the possibility to do sport for well over 300.000 people with intellectual disabilities since 2019.
Nothing to add to that statement- except that the Region Seefeld is proud to be able to say that it will host the VIRTUS World Ski Championships 2023 for people with mental handicaps.
The alpine competitions will take place in the Rosshütte ski area, the Nordic competitions in the Seefeld Sports Arena. The local organising committee is the Seefeld Ski Club. A provisional schedule already exists.
The new programme follows!
