Stanislav Pozdnyakov: “It is impossible to overestimate the role of sports universities and their Olympic academies in modernizing the sports training system”
The President of the ROC congratulated members of higher educational institutions of physical culture and sports, as well as regional Olympic academies, on the beginning of the new school year.
On behalf of the Russian Olympic Committee and from me personally, I congratulate you on Knowledge Day and the start of the academic year.
Training and career enhancement of professional staff in accordance with the times is the basis for the effective functioning of any industry. In this regard, it is impossible to overestimate the role of sports universities and their public Olympic academies in modernizing the domestic system of sports training, which requires, among other things, a closer link with the eternal ideals and values of Olympism.
The Russian Olympic Committee sees you as reliable partners in solving the common tasks facing us, and is ready for productive cooperation and information exchange. We hope for your help in creating favorable conditions for combining education and sports enhancement for Olympians, many of whom are your students.
I wish all colleagues, students and postgraduates a great academic year and new achievements.
Good health and well-being to you all!
