Monday 8th of October 2018

Baku, Azerbaijan, October 8, 2018. Back in late September, Azerbaijan’s capital Baku played host to the Global Youth Leadership Forum. 

The Azerbaijan Volleyball Federation and the Volleyball Development Centre in Baku used this as an opportunity to organise a Special Olympics Unified Volleyball match, featuring many local players, including some with intellectual disabilities, as well as Volleyball legend and Special Olympics Global Ambassador, 2000 Olympic gold medallist Vladimir Grbic. 

The Azerbaijan Federation involved a number of children in specially designed activities to promote the sport across the local school pupils while the Unified Volleyball match spread a strong message of social inclusion.
