Laser-Run City Tour brings ‘new breath and joy’ to Ivory Coast
Of all the countries to embrace the new concept of Laser-Run City Tour, Ivory Coast has been one of the most active advocates in scheduling three events for 2017.
The first took place on May 13 in Abidjan under the auspices of the Ivory Coast federation of Modern Pentathlon (FIPM).
The competition was held in "inch'Allah", in the middle of Koumassi, a district of Abidjan, at a venue usually used by local junior football clubs.
The venue was taken over by Laser-Run on the day and the event attracted more than 120 young athletes who wanted to discover how to combine laser shooting and running.
A UIPM observer reported: “More than a simple discovery of an unknown sport in Africa, this Laser-Run event gave a veritable new breath and joy in this poor area where life is difficult."
