At the 2017 Inas Swimming Championships, a range of digital content, videos, images and athlete stories will be shared to celebrate the day.

The Championships are due to begin on November 28 and finish on December 3 at the Alberca Olimpica Swimming Pool in Aguascalientes in Mexico.

“We are timing this year’s celebrations to coincide with the 2017 Inas Swimming Championships – one of our biggest competitions – as well as the United Nations’ International Day of Persons with Disabilities to really maximise the reach of the event,” said Truffaut.

“We want as many people as possible to know about high performance sport for athletes with intellectual impairments, to follow them during their careers and share their favourite moments and memories using #SupportTheBest.”

Inas will also be sharing updates from member organisations and athletes throughout the day.
