Deaflympics - Summer

The Deaflympics Games are the Biggest International Event, with players and spectators from all over the World.

In 2001 at the Committee International of Silent Sports (CISS) Congress in Rome by agreement of International Olympic Committee and CISS, the name Deaflympics replaced the former name Deaf World Games. The Deaflympics were given the same status as the Paralympics Games and Olympic Games. This means that Deaflympic Games have the same status for DEAF sports as the Olympics for “the Hearing” and the Paralympics for the Disabled.
