A few days are to go before the opening of the Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo. Turkmen athletes were actively preparing for the main sports festival. The concept of Olympism and the ideals of the Olympic movement imply peace and friendship among nations. The Tokyo Olympic Games give Turkmen athletes an opportunity to meet different people, make friends and compete in sports arenas with representatives of other countries. The most favourable conditions - training sessions, qualified mentors, tournaments and medical and psychological assistance have been created for Turkmen athletes so that they would perform successfully at the Summer Olympics in Tokyo.
The Olympic Town in Ashgabat as well as multifunctional sporting facilities in Avaza were at the disposal of the Olympic participants, where the Turkmenistan national team held its training sessions.
