“The town is known far beyond Yamal as the center for training of outstanding biathletes: Albina Akhatova, Yulia Makarova, Larisa Kuklina. The whole country is proud of them. I consider it our duty to support strong traditions of the town in this sport and start building the biathlon center there”.
Recently a new sports complex has been opened in Nadym. This year construction of a swimming pool and an ice arena in Korotchayevo will be started, as well as sports complexes in Novy Port and Krasnoselkoup.
“We fully provide all the children, who represent the Autonomous Okrug at competitions, with sports uniforms and equipment. More than a thousand athletes will receive support this year. This is two times more than a year earlier. Also, the number of away competitions, in which our teams participate, should increase by one third”, the head of the region said.
He is convinced that it will allow achieving for new worthy results.
