"As of today, the structure of physical culture and sports management does not meet the requirements to compete with other countries. We must structurally change, starting from rural administrations," Director of the State Agency for Youth Affairs, Physical Culture and Sports of Kyrgyztan Kanat Amankulov said today at a press conference.
According to him, it is necessary to draw conclusions and move on at the end of the Olympics 2016. "We have worked out a program" Concept 2020", aimed at full preparation for the next Olympic Games. The Asian Games 2018 will be a control test. We will never have a good replenishment for the Kyrgyz national team without the development of mass physical culture and sports (including the regions). We have a concept in this part, too. We would like to hold the Nationwide Sports Forum, where a new program of the state agency for the development of mass physical culture, sports and youth will be presented," Kanat Amankulov said.
He responded to a journalist's question whether it is not better that only local athletes to play for KR. "I met with the heads of federations. They essentially support my position. It is better to invest in the development of national athletes. That it was not, at least, sorry for the money spent. But there is a problem, due to which we carry out a tough reform of the entire structure of physical culture and sports management: young people have great achievements, but when it comes to high performance sport, young promising athletes disappear. And none is responsible for it," Kanat Amankulov said.
