Working results of Regions - August

10 September 2019

Regional federations on an ongoing basis conduct their activities aimed at the development and popularization of triathlon in the regions of our country.

The most large-scale event held in August can be considered ASTC Almaty Asian Triathlon Cup. This start gathered 69 professional athletes from 19 countries of the world at one of the iconic places of the southern capital - on Lake Sairan. The VIII stage of the TEMIRADAM Cup, which was held on the next day, involved 182 individual athletes and 10 relay teams from Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and South Korea. This sport festival was held with the support of the Akimat of Almaty and the Almaty Triathlon Federation.

Then, in Kostanay, the first Open Championship of the Kostanay Regional Triathlon Federation in Aquathlon among children 10-15 years old was held, dedicated to the Day of Sports of the Republic of Kazakhstan. The championship was held in order to attract children to the triathlon, to develop and popularize the triathlon in the Kostanai region, as well as to increase the level of skill and qualification of coaches and techniczal delegates in the region. The swimming stage of the competition was held in Fitnation sports complex, and the running stage on the embankment of KZhBI. Young athletes from 10 to 15 years old were divided into three groups and competed in swimming at 200 m and in running at 1000-2000 m.

On August 17, the Aktobe Regional Triathlon Federation together with the State Department "Aktobe Sports Department" held competitions in the team triathlon at the "super-sprint" distance. The purpose of this event was to attract a wide range of sports enthusiasts to the triathlon. The regional federation, in order to increase interest in the triathlon among beginners and equalize the chances of winning prizes, decided to ban members of the regional amateur Iron Tulip team from joining the same team. However, participation in any of the teams was allowed and only at one of the stages. As a result, 43 teams of 3 people were announced at the start, which included 1 woman and 2 men. All finishers and prize winners were awarded with medals.

Regional authorities always pay attention to sports. So, the Akim of Aktobe region Ondasyn Orazaliev awarded all local eminent athletes, including Aktobe finishers of BI Group Ironman 70.3 Astana, with gratitude letters and souvenirs at an official reception dedicated to Sports Day.

Our colleagues from the capital’s triathlon federation, who held a master class for Age Groupers from the federation’s trainers Sergey Bondarenko and Murat Aubakirov on “Preparing for the full Ironman distance” and “Preparing triathletes in the offseason,” do not stand aside. The event was held in conjunction with the Forever strong brand for the community of amateur triathletes in Nur-Sultan.

This is how August was remembered for our triathlon. Now the whole community of Kazakhstani “iron” people are waiting for the “TEMIRADAM” Cup Final at the “middle” distance, which will be held on September 21-22 on the picturesque coast of the Caspian Sea in Aktau. After this final start, we will take stock of the season and determine the owners of the Cup and the honorary titles of TEMIRADAM 2019.
