Arts Glorifying Sport

Sport is an indisputable social phenomenon of our time. Indeed, it permeates all layers of society and culture, involving education, politics, economy, science, art, media and international diplomatic relations in its orbit… In the Era of Might and Happiness, sport is one of the crucial spheres of self-realisation and self-assertion of an individual in our country. President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov says, “Sport as a social institution has a very high social status, it is intended to contribute to raising our patriotic spirit and building a great personality in terms of physical perfection.” Sport is a special kind of social production that “produces” a winner, a victory. Participants in competitions can experience the joy of victory achieved through their will, work and talent, and moreover, make better and excel themselves. Art is an appeal to the soul, morality. It is a mistake to think that sports contribute to physical perfection only.

For the development of these qualities it is necessary to apply speed races (sprint) for short distances (10, 20, 30 and 40 metres). The area around the house can be a running field.
