Bollywood actor, Akshay Kumar has been chosen as the brand ambassador for the Special Olympics. He was in Delhi on November 27th for the opening ceremony of the event. Accompanied by Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, he lit the "flame of hope." The Special Olympics provides year-round athletic training to kids as well as adults with intellectual disabilities. This training and participation in the event contributes to their overall development. Around 1200 special athletes from 25 states of the country are competing in the 20 athletic events which include 50-meters and 100-meters walk, throwing and jumping events and floor hockey, played on modified basket-ball court on the lines of ice-hockey, badminton, basketball, handball, table tennis and even cricket. Akshay Kumar hopes to spread awareness about the cause by being associated with it. He believes that these individuals deserve the same respect that other athletes get. With Akshay as the goodwill ambassador, we're sure that this event will get the attention that is due. Smile
