What kind of sport to choose for child — Ministry of Culture and Sports voices recommendations

Thursday, 13 June 2019, 21:16:14

Chairman of the Committee on Sports and Physical Culture of the Ministry of Culture and Sports Serik Zharasbayev spoke about this in an exclusive interview with PrimeMinister.kz. So, the fundamental three sports are swimming, gymnastics, athletics.

According to the ministry, such sports are the basis for improving the natural physical abilities of the child. These are such needs as the ability to run, swim and perform movements for good coordination, etc. After 2-3 years of specialization, the child can already express her wishes. As a rule, children who begin to engage in one sport then go to another sport.

“There is a certain mentality, when parents choosing a sport, for some reason immediately say: ‘I want my child to be able to stand up for herself.’ In order for a child to stand up for herself, she should not immediately go to boxing — there is no need for that. If she participates in any sport, then sport as a rule disciplines, forms a strong character and will. Any athlete, football player, swimmer, having all these qualities, can calmly position himself no worse than a boxer or a wrestler,” said Zharasbayev.

At the same time, the committee chairman admitted that when he is asked where to send the child, he advises winter sports like cross-country skiing, biathlon, figure skating, speed skating, short track.

“These sports are at a new stage of development. We have built a huge number of buildings for this, pay them attention. Please, go there,” noted Zharasbayev.

During the interview, the speaker also summed up the results of the sports year and announced major events scheduled before the end of the year. So, 2018 began with a significant event — in February, the Winter Olympic Games were held in Korea.

“We performed decently, no worse than at the previous Olympics. Our athlete Galysheva Yulia won the bronze medal,” recalls Zharasbayev. Also in 2018, the Paralympic Winter Games were held, where for the first time in the history of Kazakhstan, the athlete Alexander Kolyadin won the Paralympic gold medal.

Along with this, in the framework of the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the capital of Kazakhstan, major sporting events were held in 2018. For example, for the first time in the CIS, the World Triathlon Cup was held. The competition was attended by athletes from more than 80 countries.

According to Zharasbayev, 2019 is yet to be intense: by the order of the Minister of Culture and Sports, more than 40 international competitions were approved to be held in our country.

So, in March, the moguls World Cup will be held at the Chimbulak ski resort. In April, a major event is scheduled to take place at Barys Arena — the Ice Hockey Championship. Also, Kazakhstan was again given the right to host the World Triathlon Cup. In addition, the planned IRONMAN Astana Marathon. In September, the licensed World Championships will be held in three types of wrestling — Greco-Roman, freestyle, and women's. There will also be a World Para-Powerlifting Championship. The year is scheduled to end with another grand event — the World Kyokushin Karate Championship. Participation of more than 60 countries is planned. The Championship will be held under the auspices of a newly created organization in late 2019 — the Association of Martial Arts of Kazakhstan.

In addition, 2019 is significant in that it is pre-Olympic. All year before, Kazakhstani athletes will be given the task of winning licenses for the Olympic Games, which will be held in Tokyo in 2020. In 2020, the Winter Youth Olympic Games will be held, for which athletes will need to win licenses also in 2019.
