“The time of single persons has passed, teams are winning”.

April 6, 2018 on the international day of sport for peace and development a workshop by Olga Akopyan, Rio Olympic champion in handball will take place in Volgograd. Children and teenagers from social - rehabilitation centers of Volgograd region will become participants in this event.

Victories inspire and motivate. The brighter a victory is, the more challenges have been faced on the way. Children who are in social institutions, have different life experience and in many cases in their young age they have already faced a lot of difficulties. How is it better to overcome them? What to use for inspiration? Team kinds of sports at the Olympic Games are always something special, the same as a gold medal for the whole team. Team players approach their victory for two weeks, spending long hours, liters of sweat and kilometers of burnt nerves.

Charity Foundation of Yelena Isinbaeva has decided to invite an Olympic champion to talk to the children. Olga will share her sports story, tell about challenges and defeats, also she will share the story of her team on its way to the cherished gold.
