The 2009 Special Olympics
The World Winter Games were held in Idaho, USA, 7-13 February 2009 and included over 3,000 athletes from more than 100 countries. Surpassing the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympic Games in athlete numbers and participating nations, the World Winter Games is the largest event ever held in Idaho. Competition took place in seven winter sports—Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing, Figure Skating, Floor Hockey, Snowboarding, Snowshoeing and Speed Skating. Competition and other activities took place in communities and venues throughout Idaho including but not limited to Boise, Sun Valley and McCall
Syringa Networks donated time, financial support and services to the 2009 World Winter games. We donated and deployed circuitry and hardware equipment for internet services and wireless access across many of the venues. We also donated over 500 hours of project management and volunteer support over the course of this major event.
