By the end of September Mogilev is going to open the Hall of Olympic Glory. The information is provided by Vladimir Yudko, the headmaster of the regional high sports skills school.
Mogilev regional NOC organization and regional authorities have been working at the project for four months. Over this time the premise of the former Mogilev History Museum has considerably changed. It has got a lot of interesting exhibits granted by the famous sportsmen and people interested in sports.
Nikolai Podshivalenko, the honoured coach of Belarus, made a great contribution to create the hall of sports glory. He gave the hall a collection of stamps, badges, ribbons, medals, magazines, diplomas and cups which helps to trace the history of sports in the USSR and modern times. For instance, one of the showcases presents the exhibits devoted to the Olympic Games-1980 in Moscow – a harmonica, a monocle and a napkin.
The Hall of Olympic Glory will get a modern interactive guide enabling the visitors to get to know about sports development in all districts of Mogilev region. The guide will contain the information about sports facilities and equipment, sport tourism development, the leading sportsmen, coaches and other things.
