Retired U.S.-born Canadian soccer goalkeeper who played for the Chicago Red Stars of the National Women’s Soccer League and the Canadian national team, Karina LeBlanc found fantastic way to ‘break the ice’ this morning at the FIFA Female Leadership Development Programme.
More than 30 women from six continents are in Zurich for the 2nd edition of the Programme which aims to support and develop strong female leaders in football, while advocating for women to access senior decision-making positions globally.
She got them dancing to Nigerian high life crooner, Flavour’s ‘Ashawo’ 2014 hit track.
One of the least likely things you’ll see at #FIFA! @karinaleblanc was helping members of the FIFA Female Leadership Development Programme ‘break the ice’ this morning, before the final day of the first module. Check out our pinned posts on Twitter/FIFAWWC and on Facebook/fifawomensworldcup for more information. (No more dancing, sorry!) 😂💃 Karina – you are one inspirational woman. 18 years, playing at the top for 🇨🇦. Who said you needed to be crazy to play in goal?!
