MOSCOW, October 3 (Itar-Tass) —— President Vladimir Putin said the Sport Ministry should be responsible for the training of the Olympic reserve and should take over this function from the Ministry of Education.

Currently, the Education and Science Ministry deals with all questions concerning the training of the Olympic reserve in Russia.

“Many specialists believe that if we talk about mass sport in school, it should remain there, but if we talk about the training of the Olympic reserve, that is selection of the most talented children, such centres must be created but under the control of the sport ministry in order to finance them from the federal budget,” Putin said at a meeting with the finalists of the “Russia’s Teacher of the Year-2012” award ceremony on Wednesday, October 3.

Regional budgets have limited resources and cannot support such centres in full measure, the president said, adding that the training of world-class athlete is a different issue.

“So I think that this should be moved over there, to the sport ministry. No decision has been made yet, it is under discussion, but I think it would be the right thing to do,” Putin said.
