“Of course, psychologically current satiation is very difficult for everyone, but we need to look only forward. This is a flipped page. Do not give slack, move and be strong. Do not give up! Life is a constant struggle and you must always fight. Athletes are strong people, the gene pool of the nation. And after sports career life does not end, so today you need to think about tomorrow. Both in sport and in life you need to develop, improve and learn,” said Sergey Bubka, who chairs the Athletes’ Entourage Commission of the International Olympic Committee.

 

During the meeting, its participants discussed the informational and educational project Sportcamp&More that involves famous lecturers, the introduction of a series of webinars for athletes and coaches where scientists and experts of the Olympic Institute talk on various aspects of preparation for the Olympic Games, psychological state, nutrition etc.

 

The members of the Commissions considered the issue of promoting a healthy lifestyle and playing sports among the young generation by publishing children's books and creating an educational online platform.

More details on this project will subsequently be available on the official resources of the NOC of Ukraine.
