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.

Sport on the international arena

In the modern world, sports cooperation is regarded as an important humanitarian concept, considering its significant contribution to strengthening peace and friendship. 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. In particular, our country encourages cooperation with the International Olympic Committee, the Olympic Council of Asia, the United Nations Office on Sport for Development and Peace, the UNESCO Intergovernmental Committee for Physical Education and Sport, the World Health Organization, the World Anti-Doping Agency, as well as the international and regional sports organizations.

Turkmenistan is a sports power

To date, the Turkmen sport has reached a new level of development thanks to the sports policy implemented by the President of Turkmenistan. The national teams of our country achieved remarkable success in a short period. Thus, these results demonstrate the effective implementation of the sports policy put forward by the Turkmen leader. As is known, the Turkmen athletes achieved historic results in a short period, including in an impressive number of victories at the large international events and at the sports games that bring together athletes from different countries. 23 medals at the 5th Islamic Solidarity Games held in Konya, the Republic of Turkey, and excellent results of the Turkmen children at the 7th Children of Asia Games in Vladivostok, the Russian Federation, have become new stages for the development of the Turkmen sport. These results indicate that the national teams of Turkmenistan, as well as children and teenagers, make a worthy contribution to the development of the Turkmen sport. The good news from the world and regional events for the athletes of different ages provides new impetus to the confident steps of the masters who bring glory to our country, which is widely known as a sports power. Thus, these steps are linked to the fact that our Hero-Arkadag established the foundations of the sports policy and the President of Turkmenistan Serdar Berdimuham

The advantages of reading

Books are a real treasure and a key to knowledge. Without books, our history would not exist. The "Paýhas çeşmesi" book, published thanks to the concern of our Hero-Arkadag, reads: ‘those who do not read books will see, those who read books will explore the world’, ‘those who read books are rich in spirit’, ‘books educate like parents’, etc. These sayings have great meaning. Reading educates a person, prepares for the challenges of life, makes advises, guides in the right path and awakens humaneness in people. In the childhood, people take a book in their hands and start to open its magic pages and discover its secrets. Each book has a special meaning and teaches people new things. If a person has a question or faces life's challenges, he or she can look for a solution in the book.
