The message reads, in part:
“It gives me sincere pleasure to know that your project has become a tradition and for the fifth time it is bringing together the best athletes of the federal universities of this country. It gives young people an excellent chance to make themselves known, to demonstrate their abilities and, of course, to enter their own victories into the glorious history of national students’ sport.
It is important that year after year the number of participants in the festival is growing, while the attention of fans and experts remain unchanged. This means that youth sport is on the rise in this country. We have powerful resources for its further development, for new achievements in a variety of sports, including those on the Olympic program.”
The V Festival of Students Sport among federal universities is taking place in Yakutsk.
