Success of the sports policy

Permanently neutral Turkmenistan has been internationally recognized as a sports power in the years of independence. This recognition is due to the great work of our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov implemented during these glorious years. The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov noted, ‘The great initiatives started by our Hero-Arkadag have resulted in the high international sports prestige of our country. Different tournaments, including in international events, held in our Motherland, which is recognized as a country capable of hosting large global sports forums, is an excellent embodiment of our national sports strategy’.

Boxing rules in brief

Young boxing fans do not clearly understand the difference between the terms ‘knockdown’ and ‘knockout’. A knockdown occurs when a fighter touches the floor of the ring with any part of the body other than the feet following a hit, but is able to rise back up and continue fighting. A knockdown triggers a count by the referee. There should be one second between the verbal command ‘Stop Punching’ and the count. If a boxer goes down there is a mandatory 8 count. That means that even if the boxer rises to his feet the referee must continue the count up to 8 and then say ‘Box’. If the boxer is not able to rise back up and continue fighting even after the count of 8, the referee says ‘9, 10’ and adds ‘out’ after it. If the fighter fails the count, then the fight is ended as a knockout. At the children’s, youth and amateur events, the fight ends after the first knockdown. The professional boxing match continues until the third knockdown. Besides, a boxer who has been knocked out must rest for at least three months (if the blow was landed to the head) and must undergo medical attendance. The ringside physician immediately examines the beaten boxer. The boxer’s corner acts on the physician's instructions.

The pride of the Turkmen people

Ahalteke horses are an integral part of the national cultural heritage. From ancient times to the present day, representatives of various arts sing in their works love for the horse, its loyalty, grace, intelligence and racing virtues and also immortalise the talent of the people, because such a perfect breed is a result of creativity, knowledge, patience and inexhaustible creative possibilities of many generations. Nowadays Turkmen specialists aim their work at expanding the scientific basis of horse breeding activities using modern methods, promoting equestrian sports in the country and fostering international cooperation in this sphere. However, the main aspect of this work is to preserve the continuity of horse breeding traditions. This baton of glory was passed on from century to century, from one generation to another, and today, in the digital age, it is important that young people continue to revere and cherish the heritage of the nation, which determined their historical destiny.

The call to wellness

The Path of Health symbolizes the state policy in promoting the principles of a healthy lifestyle. That is why the venue has great importance in fostering love for sports, mass physical education and a healthy lifestyle in young people. To date, the development of mass physical culture and sports is a priority of the state policy in Turkmenistan. The vivid results of the successful implementation of this policy are noticeable in any part of our country. In the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state, the President of Turkmenistan contributes to the development of national sports with the education of the inspired, healthy and patriotic young generations. Thus, a person is the most valuable treasure of the society and the state in Turkmenistan. The principles of a healthy lifestyle promote the physical culture in the Turkmen society, increase the labour results, and contribute to a happy life of people. We wish the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov who contributes to the development of the mass physical culture and sports, to the public health, and a prosperous life in the country, a sound health, long life and success for the benefit of our Motherland and people!

Health adorns the human life

The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov emphasized the great importance of physical culture and sports in leading a healthy lifestyle, educating the hardworking, inspired and patriotic young people. These words indicate the call of the President of Turkmenistan for happiness, a prosperous life, health and friendship between people, because sport means health. In turn, health adorns a person's life. Physical culture and sports are the most reliable and accessible means of strengthening the human health. Sport improves the human health and boosts enthusiasm, passion for life, and labour ability.

Within the framework of the youth policy

The work conducted in Turkmen Agricultural University named after S.A.Niyazov vividly demonstrates the importance of the youth policy successfully implemented under the leadership of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov, because young people are the future of the country. Students discuss their life conditions and the concepts related to commitment to a healthy lifestyle and sports. It should be noted that the life protection of young people includes such goals as achieving their health and efficient use of time. These goals require them to be physically active and to do sports. That is why, Turkmen Agricultural University named after S.A.Niyazov is considered a very important educational centre in the implementation of youth policy. Thus, the example of the President of Turkmenistan inspires young generations to join the sports movement and to follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. The Turkmen leader increases the sense of pride of young people, who symbolize the bright future of our prosperous country, because they understand the importance of physical activity and sports. Our compatriots express sincere gratitude to our Hero-Arkadag and the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov for the wonderful opportunities created in this sphere.

Wellness and sport

To date, an excellent foundation for the national sport is formed thanks to the sports policy implemented by the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. It should be noted that this policy is a worthy continuation of the concern of our Hero-Arkadag for the progressive development of the Turkmen sport. This fact indicates that this system will reach great heights. In our time of achievements in all spheres – the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state, great attention is attached to the comprehensive development of high-level sports, physical education and health improvement. Strengthening health through physical culture and sports has become a national goal that unites representatives of all ages and professions in the country and is defined as the main condition for building a healthy society.

Effective solutions

The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov noted that the education of a broad-minded young generation is the main priority and expressed great confidence in the success of the goals set in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. The documents adopted at the VII Congress of Magtymguly Youth Organization of Turkmenistan, which was held in the Mekan Palace in the Turkmen capital on September 1, became another vivid evidence of this fact. Impressive work is underway to educate smart young generations in the new epoch. The construction and operation of world-class sports facilities, including in the Olympic Village, stadiums, equestrian complexes, and specialized sports schools in our beloved Motherland, will contribute to the formation of new generations of athletes who will enhance the international prestige of the Turkmen sport.

High achievements of the turkmen athletes

The President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov and our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov demonstrate that sport is the way to health.

His example inspires young generations to join the sports movement and to follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle. In the years of independence, multifunctional stadiums, sports complexes that meet international standards and specialised sports schools have been build and put into operation in the cities and villages of our country. The Olympic Village with modern complexes for Olympic sports in the Turkmen capital has no analogues in the region. It has become the decoration of Ashgabat and the pride of its residents.

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

This contribution can be explained by the fact that the venues for sports events become a meeting place for coaches, athletes and sports fans from different countries, a centre of friendship, inspiration and support. Following the principles of permanent neutrality, Turkmenistan expands its bilateral and multilateral cooperation with international organizations and countries in the field of sport.
