Russia will provide athletes with training camps in all climatic zones as soon as possible
Yes, we have lost the training camps that we had in the Soviet Union in our republics, but we have been analyzing the camps in the highlands, middle mountains, Siberia, the Far East for the past two months and we can see that we are able to provide our athletes with a training process for a full preparation. We had an incredible experience preparing for the Olympic Games in the Far East, and it was a success — Oleg Matytsin, Minister of Sport of the Russian Federation.
We are urgently creating these camps here, in Russia. At the same time, we are further improving our existing camps in Novogorsk, the Krasnodar Territory. We need camps in different climatic zones. The most important thing is that business is involved in this process, because it sees interest and a payback horizon — Dmitry Chernyshenko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.
We had a meeting with the Ministry of Sport and with all Russian federations two months ago. A document is being prepared, amendments are being made to the budget. I really hope that next year the issue [of camps – Ed.], will be resolved, with consideration of the interests of federations — Dmitry Svischev, Chairman of the Committee of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of Russian Federation on Sport and Physical Culture; President, Curling Federation of Russia.
