SOCHI, March 13, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Sport Minister Vitaly Mutko said on Thursday that people with physical disabilities had an opportunity to go in for sport in Russia and improve their professional skills.
“We should certainly admit that we will be unable to provide conditions for disabled people in every apartment but we have a consistent programme of helping them. All new sport facilities have been adjusted for use by people with limited physical abilities, while the stadiums already built are being re-equipped for the purpose,” Mutko told journalists in Sochi, adding that disabled athletes who do not have conditions for training in their native cities could move to live in a different place on a scholarship granted by the Russian Sport Ministry.
“Talented young people have an opportunity to leave their apartment. Look at Roman Petushkov, for example. He found a coach himself. He came to him to train and we provided him with housing. Now, he is our national team’s leader. Petushkov is not an exception,” Mutko said.
Roman Petushkov is a Russian cross-country skier, biathlete and Paralympian.
