On the initiative of the National Swimming Federation of Tajikistan and with the support of the executive body of state power of the Sughd region in honor of the “Day of the President of the Republic of Tajikistan”, the Republican swimming tournament started on November 15 in the Khujand Swimming Palace, in which 80 swimmers from all over the country took part.
The opening ceremony was attended by the Chairman of the Sughd Region, Rajabboy Ahmadzoda, representatives of the National Swimming Federation of Tajikistan and other officials. Speakers noted the interest of the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan in the development of sports and noted that, on the initiative of the NSFT, swimming as the oldest sport is developing day by day. For the comprehensive development of swimming, all the necessary conditions have been built and created, including swimming pools and training complexes.
We hope that in the near future Tajik swimmers will raise the flag of our country at prestigious international competitions.
