Ashgabat helds World Weightlifting Championships

A few days left from the start of a major event in the world of sports - the World Weightlifting Championships, which will be attended by about 800 athletes from 100 countries. 

Five hundred Turkmen volunteers with experience in major international competitions, including the Ashgabat 2017 Games, will serve the competition. Representatives of all educational institutions joined the ranks of volunteers. Students and teachers of the National Institute of World Languages named after Dovletmammed Azadi also take an active part in the volunteer movement. The specialists of the university prepared a Turkmen-Russian-English phrasebook for foreign guests. 

Many contests and tests were held for the selection of volunteers. The advantage have students who speak several foreign languages. In addition to linguistic training, great attention is paid to the specifics of the objects and structure of the Ashgabat Olympic city, the history and key aspects of the country's modern development, the traditions and culture of the Turkmen people, and the improvement of the communicative skills of volunteers. 

The trainings on the history of the national and international sports movement were conducted in preparation for the world championship in weightlifting. Students were familiarized with aspects of large-scale preparatory work for the prestigious world championship. In the arsenal of knowledge of volunteers - the skills of sports medicine, possession of interactive technologies. 

Representatives of the younger generation are entrusted with an honorable mission - to surround the attention of foreign athletes and numerous guests in the traditions of Turkmen hospitality and openness, to give a detailed idea of the country, its history, culture, customs and today's achievements. The sportswear kits were made especially for the championship for the volunteer corps, decorated with the emblem of the world weightlifting championship and original inserts of keteni fabric.
