Youth Leaders cheer on the Ivory Coast

By Ron Vederman

Ivory Coast has its Fans in the Stands from Youth leaders in South Africa

The first ever Regional Youth Leaders Summit is being conducted during the 2012 Special Olympics Africs Unity Cup. As part of this Youth Summit, leaders from South Africa, Kenya and Namibia learn the basics of being "Fans in the Stands" by cheering on the football team from the Ivory Coast. Who won? The Fans in the Stands, of course!
