“Zaporizhstal” paid trip to the recreation center “Calypso” in the Kherson region for children with disabilities, who are engaged in swimming in Zaporizhzhya Regional Centre for Sport Among Handicapped “Invasport”.
Previously, athletes “Invasport” went to Yevpatoria, the National Center “Ukraine” but because of the annexation of the Crimea, they were left without recovery of the sea.
– For children with lesions of the musculoskeletal system of training at sea is very important, – says head of training and sports department “Invasport” Irina Pavelyeva. – Genichesk area is well suited for this purpose: shallow sea, there is no depth gradients, a nice sandy beach. In addition, the territory of the base there is a small pool. We were trying to find sponsors for the trip, but many of us were denied, and the “Zaporizhstal” responded immediately, for which we are very grateful to the company. I note that we have been cooperating with the plant, it has always supported our adult Paralympic athletes that have already achieved good results.
During the eight days of rest children were not only able to train at sea, but also improve your health and get a balanced four meals.
– When we got home, the children were asked: “And we will go on next year to camp?”, – Says Irina Pavelyeva. – Parents were surprised that without them, the children did not get bored. They really liked the sea, and they are waiting for a trip for next year.
