(BBC Video) Skaters in Ethiopia


Skateboarding as a sport is barely five years old in Ethiopia but it is attracting hundreds of young fans in the capital Addis Ababa. The first concrete Skate Park is now up and running with many of the sports’ lovers hoping it will be the first step in popularizing it across the country. The Skate Park was constructed with the help of local skateboarders and the NGO Make Life Skate, which has built similar parks in India, Bolivia, Jordan, and Myanmar.
