a student, Turkmen State Institute of Physical Education and Sports, a silver medallist of the XXXII Summer Olympic Games:
– This year marked the 30th anniversary of independence of Turkmenistan and enhanced the glory of the Turkmen sports. I was lucky to win a silver medal at the XXXII Summer Olympics in Tokyo and receive a generous gift by the President of Turkmenistan this year. This high honour has become a symbol of great happiness for my family. Today, I am very happy to be awarded another honourable title. The state's support for hard work and dedication inspires the young people to achieve great success.
a coach and teacher, Children and Youth Sports School 1, Gurbansoltan Eje Etrap, Dashoguz Velayat:
– Thanks to the comprehensive concern of the President of Turkmenistan for the youth, our national flag is raised highly nowadays. According to the decision of the International Weightlifting Federation, the Turkmen leader awarded me the gold medals of the World Championships earlier this year. This success and my work as a coach were complimented by the state awards and generous gifts.
Owing to the concern of the President of Turkmenistan, the youth holds the training sessions at the sports facilities with excellent conditions.
