… that today is the birthday of the Special Olympics? The Special Olympics, featuring disabled, handicapped, and mentally retarded athletes, were first held at Soldier Field in Chicago, Illinois, in 1968. The athlete’s oath was introduced at these games by founder Eunice Shriver at the opening ceremony. The oath is “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
