Antwerp Expo was filled with the sound of children's laughter and fun at the Young Athletes demonstration.

On Monday, Sept 15th. Volleyball legend Vanja Grbic and Special Olympics Chairman Tim Shriver were there to enjoy but they would definitely agree the real stars of the day where the 20 young Belgium athletes all under the age of 8. Young Athletes™ is a unique sport and play program for children with intellectual disabilities. The focus is on fun activities that are important to mental and physical growth. Children ages 2 1/2 to 7 enjoy games and activities that develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Young Athletes is an early introduction to sports and to the world of Special Olympics. The children learn new things, play and have lots of fun! Parents say their children in Young Athletes also develop better social skills. The confidence boost makes it easier for them to play and talk with other children on the playground and elsewhere.
