On February 8, at 4:00 p.m., the Sakhalin Regional Museum will open a new exhibition timed to coincide with the First Winter Children of Asia International Sports Games.
The history of winter sports in Sakhalin began in 1929, when the government of the Soviet Union realized that the physical training of the population must be given proper consideration. Before the war special attention was paid to the formation and development of skiing and shooting sports in northern part of Sakhalin Island, moreover, ball hockey (bandy) gained popularity among the population. In the 1930s, despite the lack of material and technical basis, the Sakhalin skiers participated in All-Union Competitions.
In the second half of the twentieth century, Soviet athletes achieved a leading position in the world in the number of world records set and titles of European and World champions won. Among the outstanding athletes were Sakhalin sportsmen.
Since the beginning of the XXI century the development of winter sports in the Sakhalin region has entered a new phase: numerous projects are being implemented, new sports schools and sections are being opened, indoor ice arenas and mountain-skis trails are being built.
The exhibition gives its visitors a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the history of the formation and development of winter sports in the Sakhalin region, to see items from the collection of the Sakhalin Regional Museum, A. P. Chekhov and Sakhalin History and Literature Museum as well as Specialized Children’s and Youth Winter Sports Schools of Olympic Reserve including Kristall Ice Palace of Sports and Snowroom Boardshop Sportswear Store.
