The school component was still a huge part of Défi sportif AlterGo’s 36th edition. Some 7,000 young athletes from across Quebec pushed their limits in a wide variety of sports. This was the perfect opportunity for these young people with functional limitations to experience high calibre competitions in Montreal.
To offer the greatest number of athletes with a functional limitation the opportunity to practise their passion and compete during a major event, Défi sportif AlterGo was presenting several sports organized in collaboration with various sports federations in Quebec, Canada and with Special Olympics Quebec.
Not to mention international competitions bringing to Montreal elite athletes from around the world. For its 36th edition, Défi sportif AlterGo was hosting four competitions sanctioned by international federations. Athletes from more than 20 countries participated.
