The Kumtor Gold Company CJSC (KGC) will support the renovation of the premises and sports facilities of the “Kuluk” specialized children and youth school of the Olympic reserve . This educational institution has been operating in Kyrgyzstan for over 65 years. Here children are taught horseback riding and athletes are trained for competitions. The school develops classic Olympic equestrian sports: jumping (overcoming obstacles), dressage, and training (horse dance).
Equestrian sport occupies a special place in the historical and cultural heritage of Kyrgyzstan. It should be noted that equestrian sports are rapidly developing and growing in popularity throughout the world and especially in the Eurasian region. From May 12 to May 15, international equestrian competitions were held at the Kuluk equestrian school with the focus on strengthening friendship between countries of the Eurasian Union. At the closing of the competition, Tengiz Bolturuk, President of the National Holding Company “Great Nomads Heritage”, which manages KGC, awarded the director of the equestrian school with a certificate for the renovation of the premises and sports facilities of the school.
– We appreciate your efforts throughout many years to preserve the best traditions, and your contribution to the development of this sport. Thanks to the help of Kumtor, the warm-up and training field will be reconstructed, the surface will be renewed, and an irrigation and drainage system will be created in accordance with the latest technical requirements and standards of international competitions. The possibilities of the school will expand, sports events of the highest level will be held here. On behalf of the Company, I want to assure everyone that we will do our best to make sports available to all children in our country, – said Tengiz Bolturuk.
Promotion of physical culture and a healthy lifestyle is important for any country. KGC actively supports the implementation of the Decree of the Head of State “On Spiritual and Moral Development and Physical Education of a Personality”. Kumtor acted as the general sponsor of the School League large-scale project to develop youth sports in the Kyrgyz Republic. Support for the Kuluk equestrian school of the Olympic reserve is another investment by Kumtor into ensuring that as many boys and girls as possible in our country are engaged in sports activities.
