Hour of mastership in Zerenda
Olympic boxing champion Bakhyt Sarsekbayev and Serik Sapiev met with vacationers of the “Sunkar” children’s camp in Zerenda district of Akmola region.
Meeting with victors of Beijing and London Olympics was held on the opening day of the third season in the children’s camp. Famous Boxers first said parting words to children, then gave a special master class. Young fans held sparring with their idols, and then took pictures and got autographs. In their turn, children of “Sunkar” arranged a small concert for guests and pleased with their creativity.
At this time, more than three hundred children from families of oil industry workers from across the country were able to have a rest in the camp and make new friends.
Serik Sapiev, Olympic boxing champion:
- The reason why we met with the children was to show what they can achieve what we have achieved, to attract them to sports and to make them happy. It is always a pleasure to have such meetings and to see interest in children’s eyes. Such meetings are very important. Owing to our victories, they have a desire to engage in sports. I used to be in a camp, my father is a miner. We also had some discounts. But here everything is absolutely free for the employees of KazMunayGas”.
Bakhyt Sarsekbayev, Olympic boxing champion:
- I didn’t use to visit camps in my childhood. That’s why for me, as for these children, everything is new here. I have seen everything with my own eyes. I believe that children’s camps are very useful in the education of our children, in their development. So I was glad to participate in such an event, thanks to those people who arrange such holidays for children.
