A sports school
for cross-country skiing and orienteering was renovated in Kazan. The school building
has not been renovated since it was established in 1956. Ilsur Metshin, Mayor
of Kazan, and Ilshat Fardiev, Director General of JSC Setevaya Company,
Vice-President of the Russian Ski Racing Federation, inspected the renovation.
The two-storey office
building of the sports school is located in the Kirovsky district on
Marshrutnaya street, 4.
The roof was renovated, floors were restored, as well
as engineering systems, and finishing works were carried
out in the facility. The front of the building was restored to its original
appearance: bas-reliefs were installed, symbolizing the profile sports of the school.
In addition, during the reconstruction, the territory was improved, running
tracks were restored, and the foundation for a basketball court was prepared. Sport
equipment was also purchased.
The Mayor of Kazan visited the sports grounds where
young athletes train, the renovated training hall, locker rooms, medical room,
ski treatment room and a hall. He also talked with coaches and trainees.
“In my understanding, only a marathon can compare with
a cross-country skiing in terms of physical training. Here, there are perfect conditions
for school, the level of the Olympic team. Previously, we saw that without
snow, children ride on roller skates on not very smooth asphalt, and now there
are -both equipment and professional ski handling. The main thing is to get a
result”, - Ilsur Metshin said.
