The capital's Ice Palace is on the list of the country's main attractions and is one of the favorite places for active recreation of Turkmenistan's citizens. There is an ice arena with the dimensions equal to those of a European standard hockey rink - 60 by 30 meters. In honor of the 140th anniversary of the capital, the Turkmen skaters released a festive program.
Coach A. Gulamalyeva in an interview with a MIR 24 journalist told about the new direction - short-track, and invited everyone who wished to study at the sports school.
Turkmen figure skaters, hockey players and skaters have at their disposal five ice arenas opened in Ashgabat. This is a good base for training athletes participating in competitions at various levels. For instance, over the past few years they have visited Turkey, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the UAE, and became winners of the Children of Asia international sports games. Now the preparations for the Winter Universiade in 2022 are underway.
