Sverdlovsk region leads in complex GTO program

According to a recent announcement from the Government of Sverdlovsk, the Ministry of Sports of Russia has identified the Sverdlovsk region as a leader in the complex GTO program.

Sverdlovsk Region Gov. Eugene Kuyvashev said in accordance with the federal GTO concept, the number of people who pass the course from 2014-20 should be approximately 20 percent. In the Sverdlovsk region, this figure is now up to 27 percent.

Participants were first required to pass initial rounds at urban and regional competitions. Over 300 people were separated into five groups divided by ages: 6-12, 13-17, 18-29, 30-49 and 50 and up.

The participants did push-ups, pull-ups, swam, shot, threw projectiles and ran courses on women’s skis. They also demonstrated their camping skills with tents, cards, knots, basic geology, medical knowledge, and building campfires.

"The introduction of complex GTO in the region - it is a great organizational work,”  Kuyvashev said. “Our experts have raised all the old achievements, adapted to modern conditions, and now we realize in schools, specialized secondary schools and universities we have, since 2007, the best platform to revive the complex TRP, and during that time the region was able to achieve tangible results."
