Dear colleagues! Dear friends!
On behalf of the Ministry of Sport of the Russian Federation and myself, I am happy to congratulate the workers of the sphere of physical culture and sports, athletes, coaches, veterans of sports and all lovers of physical culture with a professional holiday - the Day of the Physical Culturist!
This year the sport celebrates the 95th anniversary of the establishment of the federal (state) and territorial bodies of executive bodies in the field of physical culture and sports in our country.
All of us are united by one goal - the formation of a physically healthy nation. The increase in the number of citizens systematically engaged in physical culture and sports remains one of the priorities of state policy. By 2024, we must reach the result of 55% of the total number of residents of our country.
To achieve this goal, the achievements and achievements of our athletes in the international arena make a significant contribution. Courage, strength of will and skill, demonstrated at the XXIII Olympic and XII Paralympic Winter Games of 2018 in the Republic of Korea by Russian athletes, conquered sports fans all over the world. The team of Russia in football showed a solidity of character at the World Championships held in our country.
For the first time we hosted the most important football tournament in Russia, conducted a huge work on the organization of the Championship, whose legacy, like other international competitions, will continue to serve new generations of athletes and athletes for a long time.
Sincerely thanks to everyone, thanks to those who maintain the status of Russia as a great sport country!
I congratulate everyone with the Day of the Physical Culturist!
