Kurash as Wealth of World Sports

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - SPORT -

Sports is the health of the pop­u­la­tion, a crit­i­cal fac­tor in fos­ter­ing a com­pre­hen­sively ad­vanced gen­er­a­tion.

Thanks to the mea­sures taken, phys­i­cal cul­ture has be­come an in­te­gral part of the life of ci­ti­zens in Uzbek­istan. For this, solid in­sti­tu­tional and le­gal mech­a­nisms have been es­tab­lished.

The Phys­i­cal Cul­ture and Sports Act re­flects im­por­tant di­rec­tions for their fur­ther de­vel­op­ment in the coun­try. It em­pha­sizes the pop­u­lar­iza­tion of na­tional sports and folk games. Some of them gained their sec­ond birth in the years of in­de­pen­dence. This is kurash, bel­boghli kurash, sin­gle com­bat turon, Uzbek jang san’ati. To­day 42 of them are known.

Thanks to painstak­ing work to pro­mote and en­sure the mass of kurash, which has a thou­sand-year his­tory, this sport has spread all over the world. It rightly is the prop­erty of the Uzbek peo­ple. The of­fi­cial in­clu­sion of this sport in the pro­gram of the

VIII Sum­mer Asian Games, which will be held in the In­done­sian cap­i­tal Jakarta from Au­gust 18 to Septem­ber 2, 2018, was truly a land­mark event.

In ac­cor­dance with the pres­i­den­tial de­cree of Oc­to­ber 2 this year, an­nu­ally on Septem­ber 6, the coun­try will cel­e­brate the day of the na­tional sport of kurash. This is of great im­por­tance for its pop­u­lar­iza­tion among young peo­ple, the preser­va­tion and de­vel­op­ment of the tra­di­tions and cus­toms of our peo­ple, the up­bring­ing of a grow­ing gen­er­a­tion of a sense of pa­tri­o­tism, na­tional self-aware­ness, and healthy life­style.

The in­tro­duc­tion of an ef­fec­tive sys­tem of kurash de­vel­op­ment as an as­set of world sports is en­vis­aged. In all cor­ners of the repub­lic there will be mod­ern clubs and sec­tions, their ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base, sports in­fra­struc­ture will be ex­panded. Many gifted boys and girls, even in the out­back, will have a chance to de­velop their abil­i­ties and be­come cham­pi­ons, the pride of their coun­try. Win­ners and prizewin­ners of in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tions will be re­warded, priv­i­leges will be given to them upon ad­mis­sion to higher and sec­ondary spe­cial­ized ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions. This will make it pos­si­ble to reach out to gifted and tal­ented young men and women all over the coun­try, as a re­sult, the num­ber of ath­letes that will mul­ti­ply the glory of Uzbek­istan will also in­crease.

Im­ple­men­ta­tion of this res­o­lu­tion will be un­der the con­stant con­trol of the Mil­liy Tik­lan­ish Demo­cratic Party of Uzbek­istan and its deputies of all lev­els.
