In addition to the IOC and all kinds of “industry” international sports federations, there is also a very authoritative International Military Sports Council (CISM) in the world, which regularly organizes the biggest international sports events, including the Military World Games and the World Cup. Military World (Military World Games). And it turned out that this structure is not so susceptible to the democratic conjuncture, in contrast to the structures that hypocritically declared until recently that “sport is out of politics.”
These days, from May 1 to 9, the 77th General Assembly of the International Military Sports Council is being held in the capital of Peru, Lima. Once a year, the delegations of the member states of the International Council of Military Sports meet and make all the key decisions about CISM activities.
One of these decisions was to determine the best athlete of the year based on the results of the completed 2021. And by secret ballot, the members of the CISM Board of Directors decided to choose a representative of the Russian Armed Forces team as the winner of the “Best CISM 2021 Athlete” award. Sergeant Vlad Krivenko from Ryazan, who won three gold and two silver medals at the 44th CISM World Parachuting Championships.
However, the work of the forum was not limited to the procedure for choosing the winners. It was decided that the V World Winter Military Games will be held in 2025 in Switzerland. But the 8th Summer Military World Games, which were previously scheduled for 2023, have been postponed to 2027.
In August this year, St. Petersburg will host the III World Cadet Games, which is scheduled to open on August 5. At the moment, more than 1,000 cadet athletes from 17 countries have submitted their preliminary applications to participate in the competition. The deadline for final applications is June 6.
The head of the Russian delegation at the forum, a member of the Board of Directors of CISM Europe, the head of the Military Institute of Physical Culture, Major General Oleg Botsman, and a member of the delegation, the head of Army Sports Central. Club, the chairman of the CISM rock climbing sports committee, Colonel Artem Gromov_ assured the Assembly participants that all planned competitions will be organized at the highest level and will take place without complications.
The decision on Vlada Krivenko looks like a kind of island of common sense against the background of the talks that have begun in the quasi-sporting international “public” about the need to deprive Russian athletes of Olympic prizes, which began to throw ashes on their heads. and send curses at Russia’s foreign policy, in particular, what a horror, it even supported the Russian special operation in Ukraine.
Indeed, there is still one sport that remains outside of politics, only one sport.
