“Our athletes’ proficiency has significantly improved. This was made possible thanks to the sports complex built by the gas company,” said Natalya Kandaurova, principal of the Tatishchevo secondary school. “Before it was opened in 2013, children engaged in physical activities only if the weather was good enough since our village did not even have a gym. When Gazovik opened its doors, children started spending their school breaks at the gym and attending various sports classes in the evening and at weekends.”
