Almaty triathlon Federation (ATF) presented 7 VinoВikes to kids triathlon school named after Dmitry Gaag

The reason of presenting sports equipment was an official request letter to Federation authorities made by the Development Director of the school Yelena Kun. 


"Our school regularly takes part in all sports events of the Republic of Kazakhstan. We repeatedly won prize places and are constantly working on improving the performance of our athletes. Our school is growing, and we are working every day to promote triathlon in the country. In this regard, we would like to ask you to consider the possibility of providing seven bicycles for children with high potential. Children are motivated, but I want to support their motivation to achieve high performance in sports," wrote Yelena Kun. 


Almaty Triathlon Federation, supported by Kazakhstan Triathlon Federation, addressed this letter to its partners – primarily to the Public Fund for the support and development of sports named after Olympic champion Alexander Vinokurov. Finally, the positive response came on February 25, 2019; seven brand new bikes were transferred to Yelena Kun. 


"The children of this school have a high potential in future to represent our country on the international arena," said the member of the Board of Trustees of Almaty Triathlon Federation Valikhan Ten at the official ceremony – “I am sure that these bikes will help your students to win Olympic gold medals”.


“We have always supported children's sports, - said Valentin Rekhert, Director of the Public Fund for support and development of sports named after Olympic champion Alexander Vinokurov, - because the development of mass sports will allow us to win the podium places at the biggest competitions. 


For reference. Kids triathlon school named after Dmitry Gaag has opened on October 1, 2017 in the Athletic village of Almaty. Today the school has 30 children. The entire learning process is personally supervised by legendary Kazakhstani triathlete Dmitry Gaag.
