Sports Day in Kazakhstan (21/08)

Every third Sunday of August, since 2004, Kazakhstan celebrates Sports Day, approved by the Decree of the President of the Republic of November 15, 2003.

Deep sports traditions in the Republic originated in the Soviet period, when the Kazakh SSR gave Soviet sports a lot of talented athletes. It is worth noting that the honoring of athletes in the USSR also took place in August, when every other Saturday was the Day of the Athlete.

Currently, the Government of Kazakhstan pays a lot of attention to the development of sports in the country, its popularization among the population and, first of all, young people. To do this, new sports and recreation complexes, stadiums are being built and put into operation, the number of sports clubs is growing.
