|IA 2007 Shizuoka|
Shizuoka’s International Abilympics (IA) in 2007 were the first IA attended by Finnish competitors. The Finns competed in four categories: poster designing, floristry, electronics, and CAD-design. Although no medals were gained, the team performed well and gained an immemorial experience.
In Shizuoka, the Abilympics were held for the first time in connection with the WorldSkills competition. Also a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the organizers of the two competitions, bringing the parties in closer collaboration.
