“The result we see on the scoreboard today proves that the priority we set for ourselves as No. 1 – infrastructure development – was right. Because it is unrealistic to expect changes even at the level of children’s and youth sports without the development of training facilities. In Lviv, Sambir, Busk, Yavoriv, Mostyska, Stryi – wherever there is the capacity to develop athletics, we have gradually and methodically created modern magnet facilities that are already training young champions, and of course, infrastructure is the basis of mass sports. I believe that after the victory, we will definitely return to this principle,” said Roman Khimyak, Head of the Youth and Sports Department of the Lviv Regional Military Administration.
