Improvement of the sports system

The Law of Turkmenistan on Physical Culture and Sports establishes the basic principles in the field of physical education and sports, regulates public relations, and determines the legal, organizational, economic, and social foundations of actions in the country. The main goals of the Law are to create the necessary conditions for effective use of physical culture and sports for a healthy lifestyle of the Turkmen people, to develop the legislature in this area, to ensure that the citizens of Turkmenistan engage in physical education and sports on a regular basis and spend their leisure time usefully, as well as to improve the human health and prevent diseases. It should be noted that the mass physical culture events are very popular in our country, and the number of our compatriots who follow the principles of a healthy lifestyle increases day by day in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state.

Ashgabat is the pearl of Asia

Ashgabat has changed immeasurably in the years of independence of Turkmenistan. There are many architectural masterpieces in Ashgabat, which is confirmed by prestigious international awards and certificates. Thus, European awards have been given for the architecture of public facilities to the Ashgabat Wedding Palace (‘Best Public Architecture’) and the Turkmenistan TV and Radio Broadcasting Centre (‘Highly Commended Public Service Architecture’).

Educational transformations

The successful implementation of the initiatives put forward by the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov for the development of our country depends on the material and equipment base of the scientific and education system, which plays a key role in providing high-level personnel for the sectors of the economy, and on the modern teaching methods. According to the Programme of the President of Turkmenistan on the Socio-Economic Development, it is planned to build 4 high schools, 54 secondary schools, and 40 nursery schools by 2028. To date, the construction of the institution of higher education of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan in Ashgabat and the Ahalteke Equestrian High School and scientific and production centre in Ahal Velayat are underway.

Independence is our happiness

On September 27, the Turkmen people have solemnly celebrated a major holiday – the 31st anniversary of independence of Turkmenistan. According to the cherished tradition, the main events of the holiday were held on the square in front of the State Tribune, which welcomed numerous guests in festive dress. The car platform of the Ministry of Sports and Youth Policy accompanied with numerous columns of masters of different sports, winners of international and national competitions, and their skilled trainers and coaches took part in the parade. Turkmenistan is recognized as the home of wellness and inspiration. Our country improves the national legislature in this area, adopts and successfully implements programmes within the framework of state support for physical education and high-level sports. The transformations implemented in the national sports system have resulted in formation of new generations of the talented young people, who glorify our country with their achievements and make a worthy contribution to the international sports prestige of our Motherland.

Dovlet Maslahaty is a symbol of statehood

The Dovlet Maslahaty (State Council), successfully organized on the eve of the 31st anniversary of independence, became a symbol of the commitment to the noble principles of the Turkmen people, which have been inherited from glorious ancestors in our epoch. On September 23, the Dovlet Maslahaty was held under the chairmanship of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov for the first time in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. The agenda of the event included summing up the results achieved over the past period and discussing priority tasks for the comprehensive development of the country. Besides other spheres, the participants attached special importance to the achievements in the development of sports and physical culture in our country, as well as primary tasks in the field of youth policy. The President of Turkmenistan emphasized in his speech at the nationwide forum that our country, which is a member of the International Olympic Committee and the Olympic Council of Asia, makes a significant contribution to the development of the international Olympic movement.

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.

Promotion of the sports movement

Thanks to the concern of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov, great attention is attached to the development of sport and physical culture in our country. The Turkmen leader promotes the initiatives started by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov and contributes to the health of people. Our compatriots realize that sport and physical culture are the main sources of the human health. Turkmenistan makes great efforts for the development of the sports system and for the promotion of the mass physical culture and sport. To date, victories and achievements of the Turkmen athletes at the international events make our people proud. The world community admires the Turkmen sport. The large international events held in our country and new victories of our athletes demonstrate this fact and provoke the deep interest of foreign sports experts in Turkmenistan and the Turkmen sport.

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.

Young people have power!

The develop­ment of mass phy­sical cul­tu­re and sports, the high re­sults in the sports events, the encou­ra­ge­ment of ath­le­tes in this con­text are im­por­tant as­pects of the sta­te sports po­licy in Turk­me­nis­tan. This work re­sults in the re­gu­lar victo­ries of our com­pat­riots at the in­ter­na­tio­nal tour­na­ments. The Turkmen athletes won an impressive number of medals and awards at the large international judo, karate, and sambo events in September.

A book is a true friend

Since ancient times, the Turkmen people have treated books with great respect and honour. In the work by N. Saryhanov, a single book was exchanged for a camel. Our ancestors always had a great demand for books. Although the libraries in Nisa, Koneurgench, Amul, Dehistan and Merv have not survived, the Turkmen people have created stories, legends, parables, and tales with deep meaning that are easy to remember and retell.

Young people are the future of the country

The members of Magtymguly Youth Organization of Turkmenistan make a worthy contribution to the implementation of the Law of Turkmenistan on the State Youth Policy and of the instructions and assignments of the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov. The VII Congress of Magtymguly Youth Organization of Turkmenistan was successfully held in Ashgabat, our beautiful capital, on the eve of the 31st anniversary of independence, and was attended by young people from all regions of the country.

Concern for the youth

The wide-scale transformations based on scientific foundations and actual opportunities are at the core of the state policy implemented by the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuhamedov in the revival of the new epoch of the powerful state. Magtymguly Youth Organization of Turkmenistan and young people conduct effective work on promoting the transformations initiated by the Turkmen leader for the bright future of our people, and on contributing to the internationally recognized initiatives for the global peace and sustainable development.

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.

Ahalteke horses are the wings of our people

The autumn horse racing season is underway this year, which is being held under the motto ‘the Era of the People with Arkadag’. Young riders delighted the fans with their performance in the heats held at the Ashgabat Equestrian Sports Complex last Saturday. On the match day, the riders competed on a 1000-metre distance.

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. The Turkmen leader holds training and running sessions, rides bicycles and horses on a regular basis. 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 Ashgabat golf club, the multifunctional modern sports complex in the Avaza National Tourist Zone, motor-racing circuits, yacht clubs, fitness centres and other specialised facilities have been built according to the best world standards.
