Meeting of the Commission  considering the projects on additional collateral to prepare the Russian athletes and send them to participate in the Olympic Games was held in the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC).

Members of the Commission, which consists of the experts form the ROC and the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation, considered the request of the All-Russian Association of Summer Olympic Sports (AASOS) for partial financing of the  Scientific and Practical Workshop for coaches and experts in the preparation for the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games.

” AASOS selected 11 international authoritative experts, whose names are known throughout the sports world, to participate in the workshop as lecturers, – noted the executive director of the association Anna Leschikova submitting the request of the AASOS. – We ask the ROC to assist us and cover the costs for their invitation and partially cover the costs for the organization of the workshop.”

Members of the Commission unanimously decided to support the initiative of the AASOS. “Any expert, no matter how high his class is, needs information and exchange of experience with the world’s leading experts – said the Executive Director of the AASOS – and if we, together with the Russian Olympic Committee, have such opportunity on the eve of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games, why not take advantage of it. “

General Director of the Russian Olympic Committee Vladimir Sengleev wished the organizers good luck in staging the Scientific and Practical Workshop, after noting the importance of such events. “We are pleased that the AASOS develops in this direction, – he said. – Such collaboration with the national federations, members of the ROC, will benefit the sports.”

The workshop will be held from 1 to 5 October in the Fox Lodge  sporting-and-shooting  complex located near Moscow.”
