Kazakhstan President asks Dmitry Balandin about secrets of his victories
Today during the Forum of youth of Kazakhstan the Head of state Nursultan Nazarbayev has taken an interest at the Olympic champion Dmitry Balandin about a secret of his victories, BNews.kz correspondent reported.
"When I asked your acquaintances, someone said, do you know that Dmitry wins because his leg is a paw, he wears 50th size. Probably, a big leg, is the most important in swimming?" the Head of state asked.
"Probably, no. Two years ago before the Olympic Games I have told that we will make everything to bring only precious metals into Astana. And thanks to your support, we did it. You do everything for development of sport in Kazakhstan thanks to what we improve not only results on sports arenas, but also really healthy sports generation grows. I am very proud that my victory has entered a moneybox of the national team, but I don't intend to be satisfied with what has already been achieved because I want in the future as well as you to glorify our country for the whole world," the athlete Dmitry Balandin said.
