Department of Athletics RSUPESY&T was named after Nickolay Ozolin
The initiative to assign to the Department of Athletics of the Russian State University of Physical Education, Sport, Youth and Tourism name of Nickolay Ozolin came from teachers. University Academic Council supported the idea, and on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the famous scientist and the athlete the Department of theory and methodology of athletics received a personal name.
- It is a tribute to the scientist, practician andathlete. Young people must remember and know its history, - says head of the department Vadim Zelichenok.
Ozolin's fate is closely connected with history of the university. At age 19 he became a student of the Central Institute of Physical Culture, and after ten years has headed the Department of Athletics and had been the head during 17 years.
At the University are traditional winter all-Russian competitions in track and field jumps - "Memorial of Nickolay Ozolin and Vladimir Dyachkov".
Employees of the department of athletics RSUPESY&T are planning to organize a conference dedicated to the memory of Nickolay Ozolin, and reissue his actual works.
