“Kalashnikov has a rather long history of relations with professional sports - bright sporting victories at major international competitions took place thanks to Izhmash's sports weapon. Last year, we entered the amateur sports area when we organized and held the winter and summer Kalashnikov Biathlon Fest. We received a great response among the participants, the competition was attended not only by residents of Udmurtia, but also biathlon fans from more than ten regions. All this made it possible to think about the scaling of this story and the holding of such competitions in other cities of Russia, ”commented Vladimir Dmitriev, the general director of the Kalashnikov Group.
“It’s great that in our country, running has been developing very actively in recent years, a whole culture of conducting marathons has appeared, a large audience of sports fans are skiing - we thought to offer all these people a new sports experience - biathlon and practical shooting,” he added.
In addition to organizing and conducting various competitions, “Kalashnikov Sport” will help athletes in the preparatory process: keep statistics, attract experts, conduct master classes, training runs, etc. The general calendar of tournaments with full and up-to-date information, preliminary online registration, live broadcasts from the competition venues will be available to everyone. All events will be accompanied by a varied entertainment program for fans and spectators.
The head of the sports projects of the Kalashnikov Group, Ivan Tcherezov, noted that the new project is designed to increase the level of involvement of the Udmurtia population in such disciplines as running, triathlon, biathlon, cross-country skiing, shooting, eSports.
