Uzbekistan plans to enter leading chess powers by 2025



Particular attention will be paid to players with disabilities. A separate chess division will be created in the structure of the National Paralympic Association.


Uzbekistan aims to enter leading chess powers by 2025, according to a decree signed by the country`s president Shavkat Mirziyoyev.
The document focuses on improving the system of selection of highly gifted young chess players, popularizing chess among children and adults, and creating children's and youth chess schools. Modern techniques are set to be introduced into the training of professional chess players, as well as incentives in the form of cash prizes for tournament winners, coaches and judges.
Particular attention will be paid to players with disabilities. A separate chess division will be created in the structure of the National Paralympic Association.
"Starting from the next academic year, 150 schools will introduce chess training. These schools will specialize exclusively in chess. Just like some schools specialize in math or English. We will spend over $700,000 for these schools to buy the necessary equipment so that children do not need anything," said Aziz Abdukhakimov, Deputy Prime Minister of Uzbekistan, head of the newly established Republican Council for the Accelerated Development of Chess.

"Another 1,000 ordinary schools will introduce chess training on a competitive basis. The best, most talented guys will be selected. We will allocate around $100,00 for this purpose. And most importantly, a revolutionary solution: chess will be introduced into the subject "Physical Culture". There is no such system anywhere in the world, in fact, we will create a new chess generation. For this purpose, some $2mn will be allocated from the state budget, " he added.

Узбекистан примет матчи централизованных турниров в двух группах Лиги чемпионов АФК – Никимбаев

Узбекистан примет матчи централизованных турниров в двух группах Лиги чемпионов Азиатской футбольной конфедерации (АФК), сообщил известный футбольный эксперт Алишер Никимбаев.

"По имеющейся информации из различных независимых друг от друга источников, Узбекистан примет матчи централизованных турниров в двух группах Лиги чемпионов АФК в зоне Восток. Это будет хороший тест для стадионов Ташкента и для сотрудников Ассоциации футбола Узбекистана, которым в 2022 и 2023 году необходимо будет принять три чемпионата Азии", – написал он в своем Телеграм-канале.

С другой стороны, добавил он, сам факт, что АФК вынуждена соглашаться на проведение турниров для команд Востока в Узбекистане, говорит о том, что Лига чемпионов в этом году не нужна ни Китаю, ни Японии, ни Корее. Все три страны благополучно примут централизованные турниры второго отборочного этапа Кубка мира 2022/Кубка Азии 2023, но не хотят принимать матчи Лиги чемпионов.

По его словам, проведение матчей Лиги чемпионов в конце июня-июле в Ташкенте будет иметь две взаимосвязанные проблемы:
  • жаркая погода (больше +40 в тени),
  • разница в часовых поясах между Узбекистаном и странами Восточной Азии.

"Когда Катар принимал турнир Лиги чемпионов в зоне Восток, матчи в интересах телезрителей Восточной Азии начинались в 13.00 и 16.00. Но это было в ноябре-декабре и матчи проводились на стадионах с кондиционерами. Если в Ташкенте первый матч будет начинаться, например, в 19.00, то в Китае будет 22.00, в Японии и Корее – 22.00, в Сиднее – и вовсе 01.00. А теперь добавьте 3 часа для начала второго матча, и посчитайте, во сколько эти игры будут начинаться в тех же странах. Но, с другой стороны, судя по всему, у АФК альтернативы и нет", – заключил он.

Uzbeks win their first medals at Tokyo Olympics



Uzbeks win their first medals at Tokyo Olympics

Uzbek legend Oksana Chusovitina was unable to reach the final and announced that she would end her sports career after the Olympics. In the qualifying round of the vault, the athlete scored 14,166 points and was placed 11th among 16 participants. Unfortunately, this was not enough to reach the final and the athlete left the big sport to the applause of her fans, coaches and colleagues.

Chusovitina is the only gymnast in the history of world gymnastics to attend Olympic games eight times (1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020).

She was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the only female gymnast in the world to have competed in seven Summer Olympics. The Tokyo Olympics was her eighth.

"Now that's all. I will not return to this. I am already 46 years old! I have so many things to do, it's time to catch up," the athlete said after her performance in Tokyo.

Chusovitina was 16 when she burst onto the international stage 30 years ago at the 1991 world championships, arriving with the Soviet team in Indianapolis as an alternate. She was called up to replace her injured teammate Yelena Grudneva.

Even though not a single athlete had managed to get a medal on the first day of the competition, the Taekwondo fighter Ulugbek Rashitov has brought the first gold for the team during the second day.

In the final match, Rashitov defeated British Bradley Sinden with a score of 34:29. He became the first in the history of Uzbekistan to win a gold medal at the Olympics in this sport.

Another taekwondist, Nikita Rafalovich started the Olympics with a victory on Sunday. In his first fight, he left no chance to Dominican Moyes Hernandez, smashing him with a score of 17:7.

The fencer of the Uzbek national team Zainab Daibekova defeated the “hostess of the Olympics” Aoki Chiki and the Asian Games finalist Yatsi Shao from China. In an uncompromising match against Jisu Yun from Korea, she won with a score of 15:12 and advanced to the quarterfinals. Thus, she has successfully won her ticket to the quarterfinals.

A member of the national judo team of Uzbekistan Hikmatullah Turaev in the -73 kg weight category defeated Igor Vantdeke of Germany. His next rival will be Korean An CHangrim.

The gold medalist at the Rio Olympics, Uzbek boxer Shahobiddin Zoirov in the weight category of 52 kg defeated Batu Khan Chiftchi from Turkey, leaving him no chance. All five judges noted the victory of Zoirov. His next opponent will be David De Pin, representative of Cabo Verde.
