In 2005 our sportsmen took part in more than 500 competitions of various levels - from "neighborhood championships" to Russian, European and World ones.

Zelenograd citizens are fond of spectacular of kinds of sports. The main ones are winter and summer motocrosses  for the Prefect Anatoly Smirnov prize and extreme "Jeep-trial". These contests are quite prestigious. The best racers participate in them. Sports festivals on parachute jump accuracy became a Zelenograd tradition. This year a special tandem landed on the MIET stadium. That was the world champion and chief trainer of Russian national team on parachute sports Sergey RAZOMAZOV and Deputy Perfect Alexey NEMERUK. While the world champion had already made over 11 thousand jumps, for Mr. NEMERUK it was the 25th one.
Height has always attracted human souls. Journalists are not an exception. Thatґs why the executive secretary of our newspaper "SOROK ODIN" ("41") Ivan LAZAREVICH has mountaineered in August the top of Mt. Elbrus together with the MIET climber team.
A bit earlier Zelenograd hosted Halfmarathon. It attracted over 1200 participants, not only sportsmen form Zelenograd, but also from the rest of Russia, CIN and other countries. Together with world champions pupils and elderly men (those who are over 70) participated in this contest. Of course the distances for them were shorter.
What makes sports attractive for people of different ages and characters? I think the best answer for this question was given by the Olympic Champion of 1964 and a legendary weight-lifter Yuri VLASOV in the title of his book: "To Master Yourself". Itґs true that potential spirit and physical strength reserves always look for a vent not only through some everyday situations but through sports as well.
Although the difference still exists. Letґs take a sprinter as an example. He puts all training experience, physical activity and desire to win on a 100-meter distance in 10 seconds. A sportsman having hit the bullґs eye after a couple of minutes knows heґs a champion of the country in shooting.
The second season in a row it took our football club "Zelenograd" several months of intense games to win silver medals in the III League of Russian Championship.
8-year old Vasily KOROLEV spent a day in fights with his coevals to become a World Champion in Tae Kwon Do. He brought home from Korea 2 Gold Medals.
We should also mention the world champion in Russian billiard Yuri PASHCHINSKY. He is the member of Russian National team. Once again he confirmed his world-class status on the World Championship. Our team won the 1st place. Thus Y. PASHCHINSKY became World Champion for the 2nd time. We should also mention that he represented Zelenograd and wore the uniform with the emblem of our popular billiard club "NAKAT."
Itґs impossible to enumerate here all the names of our best sportsmen who won the most prestigious Russian and international championships. It would be easier to publish a separate newspaper since more than 50 different kinds of sports are popular in Zelenograd. Well, it is already clear that our sportsmen occupy the leading positions everywhere and they are not going to give them up.
