The Russian Olympic Committee launches ‘Sport for All’ site at the GTO Forum

Today the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) has opened ‘Sport for All’ site in the Victory Park in Moscow within the 10th  Sports Forum ‘Ready for Labour and Defense’ (GTO). The Russian Olympic Committee invites all Forum guests to join the program.

The main objective of the ROC Sport for All program is to make regular physical exercise an integral part of life of every citizen of our country. For this purpose, according to the program developers, it is necessary not only to explain the benefits of regular physical exercise and active lifestyle, but also to show that  it’s easy and accessible to everyone.

In the Sport for All pavilion every guest of the Forum will be able to take a few steps towards active sports life.

The first step is to determine the level of physical fitness. At ‘My Olympus’ site in just a few minutes with 5 simple exercises the guests will have a chance to test their fitness level on key parameters – strength, agility, flexibility and endurance. Following these test results everyone will have a chance to find out their biological age and compare it to their actual age.

Right after the test in a specially equipped ‘Olympic Honesty’ area  everyone who is ready to take a big step towards sporting lifestyle can solemnly promise himself to do morning exercises every day, run his first 10 km or a marathon or do many other things, write his promise on a special plate and capture a picture of himself holding this plate with the use of picture kiosk. Captured images will be automatically placed on the social networks.

And in the end physical culture and sports lovers can not only test their knowledge, but also learn a lot of new interesting things, participating in the interactive Sport for All quiz. All winners will receive prizes from the Russian Olympic Committee.

For the convenience of the Forum guests the Russian Olympic Committee invites everybody to register and take advantage of the RFID-technology. Thanks to it, you can quickly and easily share your impressions and experience with your friends on social networks.

GTO Forum will run until August 10, 2014 from 9:00 to 21:00.
