Taking this into account, we need to pay as much attention as possible to the students of this college, as well as to conduct a selection among the talented youth of the institution. In addition, it is necessary to strengthen cooperation with the Uzbek State University of Physical Culture and Sports and the Center for Advanced Training. We also need to pay attention to the process of popularizing the field of sports and for this purpose, at least once a month, large-scale mass competitions should be held in the regions. In addition, we will take additional measures to protect the health of our athletes and strengthen epidemiological control," Sherzod Tashmatov said.
One of the main issues on the agenda of the meeting was the study of the condition of our athletes who are preparing for the Olympics before vaccination, taking a blood test from athletes. In this regard, Abdushukur Sadikov discussed the plan with representatives of the federations, which was developed on May 1. According to him, from today, representatives of the gymnastics and wrestling team (athletes, coaches, massage therapists, doctors, etc.) will take in-depth blood tests.
