The city of Guayaquil, Ecuador today officially marked the launch of the
2015 Inas Global Games – the worlds largest event for elite athletes with an intellectual disability.
Organising Committee President Juan Carlos Araujo spoke of the incredible opportunity that hosting the Games offers Ecuador and the South American region whilst Amaury Russo, President of Inas, predicted that this will be the best Global Games ever.
Sweden will compete in the Inas Football World Cup this summer in Sao Paulo, Brazil, thanks to the support of Swedish national team captain Zlatan Ibrahimović.
“When I heard the story about the Swedish learning disabilities national team (or The Unknown Swedes as they call themselves), I decided to make sure they would experience something that has eluded me, namely a World Cup in Brazil!”
