The national games created by our ancestors have played an important role in the physical and mental development of the people and have preserved their importance at all times. The Turkmen people have always paid special attention to the upbringing of children and their development as many-sided individuals. The concern of the President of Turkmenistan for children is the pride of every parent. The living standards of our people are excellent. The upbringing of children should be perfect. In their turn, national games form the basis of education.

The UN General Assembly adopted the Resolution ‘Integration of mainstream bicycling into public transportation systems for sustainable development’ at the 61st plenary meeting of its 76th Session at the initiative of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhammedov on March 15 this year.

The office workers say that their feet feel better after this game. Experts note that bowling strengthens the leg and abdominal muscles.

Benefits of physical exercises

The morning physical exercises in all nursery schools of our country demonstrate that the younger generations take the first steps towards following a healthy lifestyle. Physical exercises before breakfast play an important role in improving the child's blood circulation and in developing body parts. Thus, while performing exercises, it is important to hold the upright position of the body and to do them completely and correctly. Children should start exercising with a quick walking and a light running on the spot. Exercises for the hands include moving them straight forward, up, sideways, and down.

Table tennis

Table tennis is one of the most popular sports in the world. It is more developed in Asian countries, especially in China and Korea. Table tennis is a sport that can be played by two players or teams. This game is also called ping-pong. This name does not have much meaning; it just reminds the sounds when the racket hits the ball. The game is played on the table (76 centimetres – height, 274 centimetres – length), by hitting the ball back and forth across the net using small solid rackets and following the relevant rules.

Ashgabat is a blossoming garden

As was noted at the online meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers on April 22, Deputy Secretary-General of the UN, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) announced that Ashgabat was awarded the Certificate of Gratitude in recognition for the pledge to the Trees in Cities Challenge. This good news has greatly inspired our compatriots.

New qualification criteria for swimmers

The International Swimming Federation has released the qualification criteria and the qualifying events schedule for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The qualification criteria are slightly different from those of the previous Games.

Inspiring news

The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) awarded the Certificate of Gratitude to Ashgabat in recognition for the pledge to the Trees in Cities Challenge. This good news has greatly inspired our compatriots. As is known, the tree planting campaigns have special importance in human life. In this context, the selection of sustainable species of trees for this region of the country ensures that the work is effective. At the same time, the planting of orchards enhances the beauty of our country and ensures the abundance of fruits. It is necessary to plant fruit trees and grapes along with coniferous trees during the mass tree planting season. Thus, forest zones are being formed around the cities and villages in our country. At the same time, the active use of scientific achievements and water-saving technologies is very beneficial in terms of both economy and ecology.

A gift from heaven

The Turkmen people have long cherished their horses, saying, ‘I will not call you a horse, I will call you a brother’. This kindness means that the attitude of the Turkmen people towards the horses is rooted in the patriotic feelings. The love and respect of the Turkmen people for horses is based on ancient national principles. These principles are rooted in divine love. Our ancestors used to say, ‘a horse is an aim’, ‘when you wake up in the morning, see your father first, and then see your horse’, ‘where there is a horse, there will be a holiday’, as well as ‘a girl-like horse’, ‘a bride-like horse’. These descriptive phrases demonstrate the attitude of our ancestors.

Absent is a world-famous horse

Absent is a horse that has left an indelible mark in the history of the Olympic Games. This beautiful black horse was born in 1952 in Taraz (former Jambyl), Kazakhstan. The genealogy of the horse originates from the unique horses that have been bred for millennia on the Turkmen soil. Born from the horses Arab and Bakkara, Absent was descended from the famous horse Boynav (born in 1885). In 1955–1968, Absent left a significant mark in equestrian sports. At the Exhibition of Achievements of National Economy in Moscow in 1958, Absent was awarded a Level I Certificate for beauty among the Ahalteke horses. Absent took second place in the 1958 European Show Jumping Championships in Aachen, Germany. A year later, the horse won a gold medal at the Spartakiad of the Peoples of the USSR and the title of champion of the USSR.

Modern sports facilities

Excellent conditions are created for the education of physically and mentally healthy generations in our country. The modern facilities built in different corners of the country are of great importance in encouraging young people to do physical culture and sports. The modern infrastructure projects in the capital and in the Velayat centres ensure excellent conditions for the residents to do sports and to follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The Olympic Village in the capital, the sports complex in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, the sports facilities in the Velayat centres and Etraps demonstrate this fact.

The values of the Turkmen people

The Ahalteke horses are one of the sacred, world-famous, and glorious values of the Turkmen people. This truth is reflected in the fact that the horse is depicted in the center of the State Emblem of Turkmenistan. Thus, the glory of the Ahalteke horses has been passed down from generation to generation for centuries. The history of our ‘heavenly’ horses has a worthy place in the national literature and in the works of other peoples. Besides other features of the Turkmen horses, they provide a lot of information on their beauty, endurance and strength.

The youth on the way to perfection

Impressive work is underway in the field of education and youth policy, as well as in other spheres in our independent, permanently neutral Motherland. To date, young patriotic, honest, well-educated and skilful professionals are the guarantors of a happy future for our country. Thus, the laws, decrees, and special programmes, including in the Foreign Languages Teaching Concept, related to science and education, have been adopted in Turkmenistan. The foreign languages become more important in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state, when the economic potential of our country grows and international cooperation expands. This fact demonstrates that languages represent an important part of understanding, move beyond the role of communication and make rapid progress. Turkmen State Architecture and Construction Institute conducts effective work to prepare physically and mentally healthy, skilful young professionals.

The source of wellness

The countries that pay great attention to the young generations are considered the most powerful nations in the world. Turkmenistan has great confidence in the youth and creates excellent conditions to educate well-developed, patriotic and skilful young professionals. Health provides joy and inspiration to a person. People need basic physical activity to be healthy. It means that sport is the best way to wellness and the source of inspiration and beauty. Our country pays great attention to sport as a priority of the state policy. The development and promotion of the mass physical culture and health movement is the key to achieving physical and mental well-being of the younger generations.
