Guests of the Moscow Sports Day were able to get acquainted with the chronicle of the capital’s sports history through interactive platforms and photo exhibitions, as well as take part in numerous activities.
As Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin noted in his congratulations, physical culture and sports developed in the city until 1923. But it was in this year that the Supreme Council for Physical Culture and its Moscow branch were established. “Starting this year, the countdown of the modern era of development of the capital’s sport begins,” said the mayor.
Various activities were presented on the territory of Luzhniki: sports challenges, urban sports, strength athletics, chess, mini football, streetball, extreme sports, training, obstacle course, fencing, table tennis and much more. One of the zones of the largest sports stadium in Russia has turned into a real dance floor: the open-air musical “100 years of Moscow sport”, organized with the support of “New Radio”, brought together about three dozen of popular artists on a stage.
Demonstrations of the best Russian figure skaters were held: Alina Zagitova, Kamila Valieva, Alexandra Trusova, Evgenia Medvedeva, Alexei Yagudin, Alexander Samarin and others. Some of them tried themselves in other sports. Anna Shcherbakova attended an open table tennis lesson, Kamila Valieva went to the breakdancing site, and Alexandra Trusova mastered the game of petanque.
