Sport is the health of the nation."

Recall that the competitions contribute to the implementation of the task of Russian President Vladimir Putin to involve the population in systematic physical culture and sports. By 2030, at least 70% of Russians should be involved in this process, according to the Federal project "Sport is the norm of life" of the National Project "Demography".
