Swedish Government decision forces Special Olympics to choose new location for 2021 World Winter Games
2021 LETR Final Leg

The Special Olympics World Winter Games, planned for Sweden in February 2021, will no longer take place in the European nation. The reason is that the event’s organizing committee have not been able to secure sufficient funds for the Games.

The decision is a major setback to thousands of athletes, parents and coaches who had been training and preparing for this once-in-a-lifetime experience to compete at a large-scale global sports event. More than 2,000 athletes from 105 countries are registered to participate in the Games at Åre and Östersund in Sweden, competing in seven winter sports competitions over one week.

Special Olympics will immediately begin to explore a substitute location to host the World Winter Games in 2021.

Planning for the 2021 LETR Final Leg will continue and the Final Leg Planning Committee will keep Programs and selected Torch Runners updated regularly on progress to lock in a new location.
