In total, about thirty athletes who served in military service and won international, All-Russian and All-Army championships and championships in various Olympic sports took part in the celebration. During the ceremony, in the presence of officers and commanders, athletes were awarded certificates of honor and valuable gifts, the military department said. In the future, enrollment in the sports center of the Central Military District awaits the 43 recruit.
Sports companies existed from the 1950 of the 20 century and covered the entire Soviet Union, from which they "migrated" to the Russian army, where they existed until 2008, when, by the order of the Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, were completely eliminated. And only after the expiration of 5 years, in 2013, on the instructions of Russian President Vladimir Putin did sports companies be revived in operating units.
