The message reads, in part:
“In recent years, the university has become a reputable educational and scientific centre, and today it is considered one of the world’s largest sports universities. Many great Olympic champions, record holders, talented coaches and mentors, who have contributed to Russian sports victories and triumphs and have done much to promote healthy lifestyle values in our society, have graduated from it.
It is important that the current staff, while preserving their predecessors’ best traditions, are open to new approaches. The practical orientation of the university, the advanced technologies that are used in education and a solid research base allow you to face the future with confidence and attract talented, active and committed young people.”
Since its establishment, the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth and Tourism has trained over 60,000 top-level specialists, including about 5,000 foreign specialists from 115 countries, and 172 Olympic, European and world champions. As of today, the university has about 6,500 students, including 600 foreigners.
