Or maybe you live in different towns or villages. You might also have different goals. What is your goal? Is it different to your neighbour?

Even though we are all different, we all have something in common - we can all achieve our goals.

Like us, athletes also have goals. Some want to win, others want to run the fastest time they can and some just want to take part.

Every four years the Special Olympics World Games take place. They are like the Olympics for people with learning disabilities.

7,000 athletes from around the world take part. It is an opportunity for them to achieve their goals, make new friends and increase their confidence.

The athletes have different levels of ability but they all have their own goals.

Here is the story of the 2011 Special Olympics World Games through the eyes of the athletes and coaches.
