This month thousands of athletes will gather in Los Angeles for the Special Olympics World Summer Games. Ireland, who already have a solid reputation at this world sporting event, will once again be proudly represented by 88 athletes selected from across the country.


Flying the Flag

With 7,000 athletes and 3,000 coaches representing 177 countries, along with 30,000 volunteers and an anticipated 500,000 spectators, the World Games, being staged from July 25 to August 2, will be the largest sports and humanitarian event anywhere in the world in 2015. And once again, STP and Down2Earth Materials are delighted to be able to sponsor an Irish athlete in their quest for sporting success on this world stage.

As always, the Special Olympic Games will be a life-changing experience all the athletes involved and a unique opportunity for them to showcase their inspiring talents to a global audience.


To represent your county is one of the highest honours and for the athletes flying the Irish flag this will be a monumental event in their lives.

Everyone at STP and D2E would like to wish all our Irish athletes, and everybody involved with Team Ireland, every success at this year’s games. We know that all involved will do an amazing job of representing our country.

We are thrilled to be able to play our part in expanding our collective sense of acceptance and inclusion.

Bye for now,
