Ljubicic Lends Support to Special Olympics Monaco

Monte-Carlo resident Ivan Ljubicic, currently No. 3 in the INDESIT ATP Rankings, joined mentally handicapped children and adults at the Stade Louis II stadium, home to AS Monaco football club, this week in aid of the Special Olympics.

Founded in 1968 by Eunice Kennedy Shriver, sister of former US President John F. Kennedy, the Special Olympics is an international organization that provides year-round training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.

When the movement spread to Europe in 1980, Monaco was one of the first nation?s to participate.

Ljubicic first got involved in the Special Olympics Monaco program in 2002, and has since provided funds for equipment and travel to the 50 young sportsmen and women, who participate in training sessions each week in the Principality.

?It is very satisfying for me to see the happiness on their faces and for me to participate and help fund such a worthwhile cause,? said Ljubicic, winner of the doubles bronze medal with Croatian compatriot Mario Ancic at the Olympic Games in Athens.

?As players we do not have much time at home, but I try to visit and support the Monaco program as best I can.?

Today, the Special Olympics cater for 2.25 million children and adults with intellectual disabilities in more than 150 countries.
