Sport is the harbinger of peace

21 January 2022

Physical education and sports contribute to a healthy society. Physical exercises are an important part of a person's life at any age. They have a profound effect on the physical development of children and adolescents and prepare young athletes for professional sports. Success in sports instils self-confidence, increases the resistance to physical and mental load and prevents rapid aging.

Declared as ‘the International Year of Peace and Trust’ on the initiative of Turkmenistan, the year 2021 was marked by great success. This motto had a special meaning in sports. As is known, the phrase ‘Sport is the harbinger of peace’ is common. The national sport has achieved great heights thanks to the concern of the Turkmen leader. A large number of young people choose sports and follow a healthy lifestyle. Impressive work is underway by Turkmen State Institute of Physical Education and Sports to attract the youth to sports. Our institution of higher education has excellent opportunities for young people to do the sports that are relevant to their fields of study. Our students successfully perform at the international and national events.
