Special Olympics volleyball ambassador Grbic joins players for international sports day

To mark the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace on 6 April 2014, Special Olympics Serbia held a female volleyball tournament in Cacak. Mr. Vladimir “Vanja” Grbic, Special Olympics volleyball ambassador, and Special Olympics Serbia supporter Mr. Dragan Atanasov, deputy to the minister of youth and sport, were present. “It is my pleasure to socialize and play with these great athletes. I think it is important to use every opportunity to enable our athletes to play sports. This is the best way to overcome prejudice. They are dedicated and they are my role models,” Grbic said. Mr. Atanasov said, “The Ministry of Youth and Sports is proud to support Special Olympics Serbia. I am honored to participate in an event that marks a day with an important mission.” Local government representatives also attended. Local pro basketball club Borac provided the sports hall for free. Teachers and students from a local mainstream school and a special school served as volunteers.
