President Karimov Arrives in Sochi

10.02.2014

President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Islam Karimov has arrived in the city of Sochi, Russia, to attend the opening ceremony of the 22nd Winter Olympics. 

Our country is represented at the Olympics by a group of athletes, including those who have succeeded in qualifying competitions like the mountain skiers Ksenia Grigorieva and Artyom Voronov, as well as the figure skater Misha Ge. The state flag of the Republic of Uzbekistan was raised in honor of our national team on February 5 in the Olympic village at an official ceremony. 

The 22nd Winter Olympics is sixth in a row that the national team of the independent Uzbekistan is taking part in. 

Our nation was represented as a sovereign team for the first time in 1994 at the 17th Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway, and it was that very contest that our athletes made a remarkable achievement at once, namely, a gold medal was earned in freestyle. 

Over the past years, Uzbekistan’s representatives won 6 gold, 5 silver and 11 bronze medals in Olympics, while in Asian Games our athletes won 54 gold, 76 silver and 93 bronze medals. Such accomplishments are indicative of Uzbekistan’s mounting consolidation in the community of nations, as a country where sports are placed in the core of government priorities, yielding momentous fruits in the form of accelerated development and promotion. 

Today, sports enjoy a growing significance and popularity with the younger generation of our people. Some two million children in Uzbekistan are regular in more than 30 types of sports, as the head of our state – Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Fund for the Development of Children’s Sports Islam Karimov said. National teams of our country in Olympic sports are shaped at schools of higher sporting mastery who host 2,000 athletes. 

In general, around six thousand Olympians and members of national teams from 105 countries are taking part in the 22nd Winter Games in Sochi.
