Masha Nikulina, the winner of the children’s drawing competition, is a participant in Special Olympics Russia. This organization has taken it upon itself to train children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Olympic disciplines, and to give them a chance to enter sporting competitions.
In Russia, the integration of the intellectually disabled into society is still very much in its infancy. Special Olympics Russia demands that politicians take a stand against inequality and intolerance, and that they recognize the capabilities of people who have intellectual disabilities. The sport organization’s work encourages young people to discover their own talents, to learn what it means to be valued as part of a team and to make friends. By forming mixed teams of athletes, both with and without intellectual disabilities, it helps overcome prejudice and strengthens the participants’ self-esteem.
The watch is water-resistant to 3 bar and features the robust IWC-manufactured 89361-calibre movement, which has a flyback function, an imprint at the edge of the dial with a quarter-second scale for recording cumulative times, and an analogue display for longer stop times on an inner subdial.
