Hopes that Perth will host Special Olympics in 2027
Special Olympics Australia says Perth is “well placed” to hold the 2027 special olympics.
The event is held every four years and has twice as many athletes at the Paralympics.
It’s also never been hosted in the southern hemisphere before.
Board Member of Special Olympics Tanya Brown says it will bring the country together.
“We’ve been speaking to Special Olympics International for two years,” she told Millsy on 6PR Afternoons.
“We’re very far along in our bid development, and feasibility.
“So it’s an incredible opportunity to activate the Asia-Pacific region … it’s super exciting.”
