Sakhalin can become the base of the Russian Olympic team to prepare for ski competitions

Elena Vyalbe, President of the Russian Ski Federation, supports the creation on Sakhalin of a training center for the country's Olympic team for the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. This is reported by the press service of the Sakhalin Region Administration following the meeting of the famous athlete with the Deputy Prime Minister of the region Sergey Khotochkin. During the meeting, prospects for the development of winter sports in the region were discussed.

“I suppose that we will train athletes here, on Sakhalin. From here we will fly to the Olympics. Your time zone is close to South Korea. The climate is also suitable. Thus, everything is going in favor of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, ”said Elena Vyalbe.

Sergey Khotochkin said that in the Sakhalin region there are big plans for the development of sports such as alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, biathlon, biathlon, ski jumping. At the expense of the region, 30- and 40-meter springboards are put in order. This year, the 70-meter springboard with lighting, a modern lift, and snowmaking system will be put into operation.

“In the construction of such large expensive facilities as the biathlon complex and 120-meter springboard, we are counting on co-financing from the federal budget and would like to receive your support in resolving this issue. These facilities should be ready for the 2016 year, ”said the Deputy Prime Minister of the island region.

“Elena Vyalbe expressed her readiness to provide all possible assistance in resolving this issue and promised to bring it up for discussion in the Russian Ministry of Sport,” the report says.
