The Head of State stresses that the whole country hopes on the athletes who will defend the honor of Kazakhstan. Athletes will be represented in 26 sports. About one hundred licenses were obtained. Nursultan Nazarbayev noted that Olympic Games in the 25th anniversary of Kazakhstan are symbolic.

 

Nursultan NAZARBAYEV, PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 

Within 25 years of independence, we have trained a large number of talented athletes, world champions, who carry our flag at the most prestigious competitions. All of them simple folks, many of them are from village. Due to their efforts they reached their goals. Over 20 years names of 17 Olympic champions are inscribed in golden letter in sporting glory of our country. We recognize the high contribution of our Olympic champions.

 

Both famous and budding athletes will participate at Rio Olympics. This is first and the most exciting Olympiad for a 20-year-old taekwondo fighter Ruslan Japarov. The youngest winner of international tournaments was entrusted to carry the flag of our country for great sports achievements.

 

Ruslan ZHAPAROV, MEMBER, OLYMPIC TEAM OF KAZAKHSTAN:

 

This is a great honor. I think everything will be alright. All Kazakh athletes are determined to win. We have only one month left. We need to work out more and win the medals.

 

The President noted that achievements in sports are another way to show the world the potential of Kazakhstan. And Olympians should occupy the highest possible place in the team standings. This applies to the Paralympic team as well. Nine Kazakh athletes will participate in Rio Olympics. Nursultan Nazarbayev said parting words to the athletes and wished to be determined to win. The results of the next Olympic Games should be better than the previous.
