The Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) is experiencing a sports boom

About it in an interview with EastRussia.ru said the Minister of Sports of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Mikhail Gulyaev.

According to him, in Last year, 548 republican sports events were held in the region, not counting municipal ones. Of these, two world championships (World Championship in boxing among students, World Championship in mas-wrestling), two championships in Russia (Czech Republic in freestyle wrestling, Czech Republic and the Russian Cup in archery). There are also traditional events - the Roman Mikhailovich Dmitriev International Tournament (17 countries participated last year), the Dmitry Petrovich Korkin International Tournament (30 countries participated).

In 2016, Yakutia will host the international sports games “Children of Asia. We have already begun preparing for them. In the summer, there will be a presentation of these international sports games with the participation of the secretaries general of the national Olympic committees. The main participants in the games are Yakutia and Asian countries. The Olympic Council of Asian countries has 44 states. Last time 30 of them participated in Children of Asia. Mikhail Gulyaev expressed hope that next year the number of participating countries will increase.

The Games of the North, the Spartakiad at the level of districts and uluses are also being organized in the region. There is also Evenk football, where the rules are completely different - a leather ball, you can play in the snow in winter and in the swampy tundra in the summer (we cannot find large football fields in the Arctic uluses). Very interesting competitions - the "Olonkho" Cup, are organized during Ysyakh - the Yakut holiday of the meeting of summer: the strongest, most agile, most enduring all-round athletes compete in weight lifting, running, jumping, archery.

In 2017 in Verkhnevyluiisk will host the Spartakiad on national sports. The head of the republic Yegor Afanasyevich Borisov held an organizational meeting to determine which social facilities will be built and in what terms. It is known that at the end of this year, the construction of a stadium and a sports complex will begin. Mikhail Gulyaev especially stressed that the ministry is trying to hold major sports events not only for the sake of the events themselves, but also for the development of the material and technical base of physical culture and sports, as well as social infrastructure.
