The 7th World Dwarf Games was held from August 4-12, 2017 at the University of Guelph, in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, and was the largest Games to date, hosting the largest number of countries, athletes and spectators . We welcomed short-statured athletes with dwarfism from all over the world, from 6-69 years old, including first time athletes to paralympians, to participate in the 7th World Dwarf Games. Thank you to all of the donors, family, friends and volunteers who made the event possible. The City of Guelph and the University of Guelph were very welcoming to all of the athletes and everyone had a wonderful time!
