    The event was organized by the International Committee “Children of Asia” in collaboration with the Department of Physical Education of the Ministry of Tourism and Sports of the Kingdom of Thailand.

    The Summit was attended by young sports professionals aged 18-35 from 21 countries: Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Belarus, Iran, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Cambodia, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mongolia, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Russia, Sri Lanka, Tajikistan, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan.

    The Russian Olympic Committee as the founder of the International Committee “Children of Asia” was represented by Rodion Plitukhin, Secretary General of the ROC.

    The plenary session “Asia – the Territory of Children’s Sports. Regional Cases” was held as part of the Summit, which touched upon key aspects of children’s sports development, including accessibility of sports opportunities, introduction of innovative teaching methods, creation of conditions for lessons, as well as support for young athletes in the countries of the Asian continent.

    Also on the margins of the Summit there was a foresight session “International cooperation in the sphere of sports reserve training”. Its participants discussed modern trends and methods of sports training, as well as the role of international cooperation in the formation of sports reserve.

    – The organization of the III Summit of Young Professionals in Sports by the International Committee “Children of Asia” organically fits into the chain of events that the Committee has been organizing for several years with the support of its founders – the Olympic Council of Asia, the Government of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Russian Olympic Committee, – said Rodion Plitukhin, Secretary General of the Russian Olympic Committee, Vice-President of the International Committee “Children of Asia”.

    The “Children of Asia” International Committee is not limited exclusively to sporting events, but also implements a number of cultural and educational initiatives. For example, the educational project “Path to Olympus” was presented during the Summit, as well as the International Forum of Young Olympians (IFYO), which is traditionally organized by the ROC and this year will be held in Yakutsk as part of the VIII Summer Games “Children of Asia”.

    – Although the Forum is in its sixth iteration, this year marks an experimental format as it will be held alongside a complex sports competition for the first time, integrated with the “Path to Olympus” program. Hence, all participants and guests of the Games will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the fundamental principles of clean sport, assess their physical capabilities at the ROC Innovation Center, and participate in quizzes on Olympic Movement knowledge and Olympic values. All this will help young athletes to adapt more smoothly to future adult starts.  It will be a great opportunity for the IFYO organizers to declare the humanitarian mission of the project and remind about the unifying power of sport in our lives – Rodion Plitukhin added.

    Also within the framework of the Summit, titled Olympians, alumni of the “Children of Asia” Games held a series of master classes for local athletes. Chairman of the “Children of Asia” Games Alumni Union, Olympic champion Lilia Akhaimova – in artistic gymnastics, and Olympic champion Vera Biryukova – in rhythmic gymnastics.
