Ski jumps of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk were checked for readiness for the 1st Winter International Sports Games "Children of Asia". 


Dmitry Zubkov, deputy head of the directorate for the development of sports of the Federation of Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined of Russia, arrived in the capital of the region to check sports facilities. He had to assess the condition of the facilities for the possibility of holding large-scale competitions on them.

As Zubkov said at a meeting with the Minister of Sports and Youth Policy of the region Sergey Burenkov, the ski jump complex is in good condition. There are minor flaws, and if they are corrected, the complex will last for decades. In addition, not every region has ski jumps within the city. In addition to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, these are Ufa, Perm and Moscow.

Now, SakhalinMedia IA clarifies, it is necessary to install software for electronic systems and lay cable channels for holding competitions.

13 teams announced their intention to participate in the "Children of Asia" sports games. Among the Russian athletes are skiers from China, Turkey and Japan. South Korea is expected to participate. The first Winter Games "Children of Asia" will be held on Sakhalin from 8 to 17 February 2019.
