Sports achievements of our Motherland

In the years of independence, Turkmenistan has established the physical culture and sports movements and the foundations for international cooperation in this sphere. After the election of Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov as the President of Turkmenistan in 2007, all spheres of economy and society, including in sport, have undergone transformations. The development of physical culture and sport, the promotion of the principles of a healthy lifestyle as a result of the harmonious physical and spiritual development of people, and the expansion of international sports cooperation have become the priorities of our state policy.

The youth are the core of the country

To date, the concern for the youth is paramount in our independent, permanently neutral Motherland. The VII Congress of Magtymguly Youth Organization of Turkmenistan was held on September 1 and demonstrated the above-mentioned fact, which was clearly expressed in the historic speech by the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov on the same day. The national legislature has great importance in this sphere and provides a solid foundation, because it clearly defines principles, goals, tasks and main directions of the state youth policy in our country.

With pride in our hearts

To date, the concern of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov to the Turkmen sport inspires our compatriots. The Turkmen leader considers sport to be a source of health and creates excellent conditions for doing sports and physical education in our country. The sports events have a positive effect on the development of the physically and mentally healthy young generations in independent, permanently neutral Turkmenistan. Intensive preparation of athletes for each sports tournament helps them to gather experience for the future events.
