For the second year in a row, the Parimatch Foundation has been a partner of Cool Games, and we believe that it is very important to support children’s desire to be active and play sports. Especially now, because in today’s world, people often lead a sedentary lifestyle, move little. And it negatively affects health. But such projects allow us to interest children in sports, which will definitely benefit them in the future – said a representative of the Parimatch Foundation in Ukraine Vadym Misiura.
Cool Games is a unique Ukrainian project launched in 2018. It promotes the creation of interesting and vivid physical education lessons and massively involves student youth in physical activity.
During March-May, regional qualifying rounds of Cool Games were held throughout the country, which were attended by 100,000 students from 8,000 secondary schools.
To determine the 12 teams that won medals today, on May 27 and 28 in Pushcha-Vodytsya in the Wellness Center “Pushcha”, Sports School “Pushcha-Vodytsya”, gym “UTOG”, two stages of the group tour took place, in which 500 students participated. All teams consist of girls and boys equally and have three age divisions: 9-10, 11-13 and 14-16 years.
The All-Ukrainian final of Cool Games traditionally gathered the winners of the qualifying rounds from 24 regions of Ukraine and the city of Kyiv. In addition to the competition part, each region presented its region with dances, songs and incendiary performances. This is especially symbolic now, in the year of celebrating the 30th anniversary of Ukraine’s Independence, when the unity of our country is so important for its prosperity.
Sport not only develops strength and agility, but is also a great way to cultivate strength of spirit, character and determination. It is healthy, happy and self-confident people who are the support of any nation. Our task with you is to promote the ideas of a healthy lifestyle and physical activity among young people and such competitions help us in this in the best way, – said the Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports of Ukraine for Digital Development, Digital Transformations and Digitization, Vitaly Lavrov .
It is worth noting that the success of Cool Games was celebrated by the International Federation of Student Sports and in November 2019 in Kiev held the first International sports event among schoolchildren “ISF World Cool Games”.
