MOSCOW, March 22. /TASS/. A central track and field stadium in Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, will be named after the world’s most famous pole-vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva, Dagestani Sports Minister Magomed Magomedov told TASS on Wednesday.
"Yelena Isinbayeva is regularly visiting Dagestan, which is her second homeland," Magomedov said in an interview with TASS. "It explains our decision to rename the ‘Trud’ stadium after her."
"The reconstruction of the sports facility has been already completed and the stadium will soon have the name of this famous athlete," Magomedov added.
The two-time Olympic champion’s father originally comes from Dagestan, while his legendary daughter Yelena was born in the city of Volgograd (known as the city of Stalingrad during the Soviet era).
Besides two Olympic golds, Isinbayeva, 34, is a triple world champion (2005, 2007 and 2013), having set a total of 28 world records, and is currently considered the greatest female pole-vaulter of all time.
