Stanislav Pozdnyakov: “The decision by the World Athletics Council is an opportunity to create a starting point for resuming substantive negotiations”
ROC President commented on the decisions by the World Athletics (WA) Council on RusAF’s status.
Two interesting but very different projects have been launched on social media platform.
The Russian Olympic Committee is implementing a special digital project on social media to recreate the main events, atmosphere and features of the 1980 Moscow Olympics.
Due to numerous queries from the media in regard to information relating to possible violations in the financial and economic activities of the All-Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA), the Russian Olympic Committee and the Russian Paralympic Committee, being the founders/members of the Russian anti-doping organization, consider it necessary to announce the following.
Pursuant to the instructions of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin following the meeting of the Council under the President of the Russian Federation on the Development of Physical Education and Sports, held on March 24, 2014, the Russian Olympic Committee developed the Olympic Country Development Assistance Program, guided by the Olympic Charter, according to which, one of the tasks of National Olympic Committees is to promote the development of mass sports, and also within the framework of the international movement ″Sport for All″.
Every June, the Russian Olympic Committee holds the All-Russian Olympic Day, which is dedicated to the main state or sporting events of the year.
In order to popularize the ideas of Olympism among the younger generation and involve children and young people in systematic physical education and sports, the Russian Olympic Committee, after the Olympic Games in Sochi, launched a new sports and educational project Olympic Patrol, which is part of the Olympic Country program.
