Google paid tribute to the Special Olympics on Saturday with a doodle celebrating the competition’s athletes performing activities like stretching, lifting weights, swimming and playing soccer, basketball and golf.
The 2015 games, for athletes with intellectual disabilities, are taking place in Los Angeles beginning Saturday and running through Aug. 2. The Special Olympics invite 6,500 athletes from 165 countries to compete in more than two dozen sports. The competition was founded by Eunice Kennedy Shriver in 1968 “to create a world that is not dominated by those who are excluded but by those who are included,” the organization writes.
