Marcel Hirscher supports the Games 2017 as an official Ambassador!

Since 1993, the United Nations declared December 3rd as the "International day of Persons with Disabilities". This is to keep public awareness alive regarding the problems people with disabilities face and promote the dignity, rights and well-being of these people. With this important date in mind, we want to present our next Ambassador for the Special Olympics World Winter Games 2017 - with today's press release - it is, currently the most successful skier, Marcel Hirscher.

After Austria's “Sportsman of the year 2015" at Audi’s January presentation in Schladming where he had to cancel his participation, he went on to receive the "Ambassador" heart as a symbol recently within the framework of the gala night of the sports end of October in Vienna. Hirscher, of fire and flame, for the major sporting event and especially to assist the world Winter Games, says: "Sport is good for all of us and is important to us. But the joy of movement and the experience through victory and defeat is not just reserved for those that are lucky enough to be without disability. For this reason I committed to promoting the opportunity for those with disabilities to practice sport. I am proud to promote and support the Special Olympics World Winter Games 2017."
