Governorship Cup Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding races were held at Davraz Ski Center facilities, the pearl of the Mediterranean, in order to promote and spread skiing throughout the province and to train professional skiers. Approximately 100 athletes from alpine discipline and snowboard branches participated in the races organized by the Provincial Directorate of Youth and Sports under the leadership of Isparta Governorship. Athletes who participated in races in 10 different age groups in alpine skiing and snowboarding competed fiercely with each other to get a place.
The award ceremony was held at the end of the races. The medals of the winning athletes were given by Governor Ömer Seymenoğlu, Burdur Governor Ali Arslantaş and protocol members. After the medal ceremony, Governor Seymenoğlu and Governor Arslantaş took many photos with young athletes.
Making a statement about the races organized, Governor Seymenoğlu emphasized that such organizations are very important in bringing young skiers to sports. Governor Seymenoğlu said, “From the day we first arrived, we have been talking about Davraz as a blessing for this city. In addition to evaluating Davraz only in terms of tourism and economy, we started to evaluate and plan Davraz Ski Center and its region within the scope of social responsibility. When we arrived, our Youth and Sports Provincial Directorate had a gym activity. Thank God we completed it and put it into service. The first output of the gym was the 1st Governorship Cup races we organized this year. Because without this physical space, it would be difficult for us to train our children in a healthy way and to race them on the tracks. We plan to use our sports hall, which has been brought to our city, in other sports activities. Davraz naturally gives us this opportunity. We completed our organization to seize the opportunity. You can be sure that in the coming days, mainly from Turkey Isparta year in the name of the province will start to hear everywhere. Because we have very successful children in skiing and snowboarding. It is up to us to prepare the necessary infrastructure for them and to send them to such competitions after having a good training. I would like to thank our Youth and Sports Provincial Director, Special Administration Assistant General Secretary, the managers of our ski clubs, our trainers and those who contributed to this organization ”.
It is planned that the Governorship Cup Alpine Skiing and Snowboarding races, which was held for the first time this year, will become traditional in the following years.
