As we have already reported, went on sale in the next issue of Yacht Russia №3-4 (127). We offer you a review of Vasily Senatorov published in this issue of the journal under the heading “From the publisher”.
The last world championship World Ice and Snow Sailing Association (WISSA) showed that Russians are the undisputed leaders of the world of Snowkiting. As on boards and skis. And the sport is rapidly gaining popularity. In the world and in our country.
And what of it? And the fact that this is one of those straws which can help to pull out of the scandalous doping impasse. Former heads of pharmaceutical hard digging the tunnel, not realizing that it, and the design here-here will collapse. That’s what happened. But against all logic the main digger initially raised for the enthusiasm then, however, miserably kicked out of the government.
But do not need the tunnels, and highways. This could be a new sport “Winter sail”. Only need to do the kiting and boarding and Olympic to include in the programme of the winter Games.
Nothing unreal about it. Remember how in 1987, first stood on a snowboard at the seminar INTERSKI in the Austrian Kitzsteinhorn. Alarmed by the decline of interest in skiing among young people, the global ski industry then presented the “alternative” shells. I have a snowboard didn’t work, and Volodya Sinatov, skier from Kamchatka, immediately tamed new. And took the first snowboard in the Soviet Union, viminal it to spawn. However, the sports development Board for both feet is not received. The planned Soviet sports policy was that the Soviet Union developed the only recognized Olympic sports and disciplines. Remained snowboard then exotic. If either of us would have thought that in just 10 years, “Board” will be Olympic! And the popularity will catch up with skiing.
Can we start to learn from mistakes?
What you need to the sport was recognized as an Olympic? It needs to have its own international sports federations, national bodies and cultivated in 25 countries on three continents. And to initiate the procedure of recognition can and the national Association bowed to the participation of its international authority.
That would be something to do ryf!
But I don’t see yet our dear leaders that promise.
I pin their hopes on the development of this direction in Russia with the new leadership of the WFTU that will be selected within six months. I think we will convince the World Sailing and prospects of this sport, especially since he is very friendly, entertaining, inexpensive, and beskempirov genderequality! I am sure that the IOC will not remain indifferent to it.
And therefore I ask the Executive Committee of the WFTU to make this proposal a list of the addresses to the new Presidium.
