The race for the right to host the first innovational tournament Games of Future goes on with 5 cities on the short-list: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Kaluga and the federal territory Sirius.
The swimmer Sergei Fesikov, bronze medalist of the Olympics-2012 in the 4×100 freestyle relay, gold medalist of FINA World Swimming Championships 2014 (25 m) lends his support to one of the cities:
”It would be great if Kaluga hosts such major international event as the Games of Future, for we also have something to show to the athletes and the guests of the region. Of course, I am wondering what specific disciplines will be proposed by the organizers to take into account classic sports and digital technologies.
I like sports-related computer games myself. It is nice to see that the kids are offered an opportunity to fully develop both in real and virtual life! That’s just the future of all areas of our multifaceted life, including the elite sport. Therefore, I will keep an eye on the project and cheer for our region when the winner of the contest will be chosen!”
