Olympic patrol was launched in Moscow
For two days children from Children’s health camp Plamya, located in Nasonovo village, Dmitrov district, were discovering Olympic values through the Olympic Patrol program of the ROC, which was launched in Nasonovo.
Each morning, of course, not without charge and Olympic champion breakfast, compiled with the assistance of Olympic champions. For lunch, for example, the children were served salad “Olympic values,” soup “Friendship”, roast “Five Rings” compote “Yummy. Sportish. Your”.
On Monday, after the champion’s dinner, there was a real surprise waiting for the students. A legend of national sport, Olympic cross country skiing champion in the most difficult discipline – 50km marathon – Mikhail Ivanov visited them.
Olympic lesson, hosted by the champion, lasted for several academic hours, and it made the children very happy. And after the famous athlete told them about his way in sports, about the Olympics and about the secrets of his success, each of them (over 400 people) received his autograph and most of them were photographed with him.
And in the evening the children were dancing at the Olympic disco.
Today Olympic Patrol will visit the Matveykovo camp in the Odintsovo district, where a four-time Olympic champion Alexei Nemov will give a master class and an Olympic lesson.
Olympic Patrol is a program of the Russian Olympic Committee, whose purpose is to tell the children and teen-agers about the Olympic movement, to introduce them to Russian Olympic athletes and to remind them once again about the benefits of sports and the importance of active lifestyle.
The project involves famous Russian athletes – multiple Olympic, European and World champions and medal winners. They evaluate fitness level of the participants, give Olympic lessons and conduct fun competitions.
The most active young participants of the program will become a part of the Olympic Patrol team and will continue to participate in the project together with the Olympians.
