FROM SCHOOL SPORTS HALLS TO NATIONAL TEAM CAPTAIN
IMM Youth and Sports Deputy Director Murat Sönmez and the captain of the U21 Futsal National Team Recep Taş visited the Summer Sports School students while the training was going on in the halls. During the visit, gifts consisting of t-shirts, shorts, socks and sports bags were presented to the children. Captain Recep Taş trained in the hall for a while and watched the children's work. Taş stated that he started sports at the age of 15 and that the work of İBB in school gymnasiums made a great contribution to him. Stating that the summer sports schools held in the School Sports Halls are a good opportunity to start sports, Taş said, “The construction of these halls is very important for students and athletes. It provides great convenience to athletes who need a gym for both physical education lessons and training. The first works I did in the halls of IMM also have a great place in my sports career. With the guidance of my coaches and trainers, I worked hard and became the captain of the U21 Futsal Team. I recommend my brothers who want to do sports and want to progress in the branch they are interested in, to know the value of these halls and to work hard.”
