Johnson & Johnson accompanied Flavio Völlm to the Special Olympics World Summer Games

On 14-21 March, the Special Olympics World Summer Games took place in Abu Dhabi. More than 7’000 athletes from over 190 countries came together to compete in various competitions, but also to celebrate the empowerment of people with intellectual disabilities through sport. The participation in the World Summer Games is a unique highlight for all Special Olympics athletes in their sports career.

64 Swiss athletes have given their best in 12 different sports in Abu Dhabi. As a national partner of Special Olympics Switzerland and a delegation partner of Team Switzerland, Johnson & Johnson met Flavio Völlm, one of the tennis players, and accompanied him to the event. 

Flavio plays in Procap Sport Zug and has been part of Special Olympics since 2012. He has already participated in several competitions, such as the National Summer Games in Geneva last year. 

However, the World Summer Games were one of the biggest challenges so far. He won two bronze medals, but that’s not all, he brought back priceless experiences and unforgettable memories from Abu Dhabi.
