Fifteen pupils of school No. 7 in Astana got the opportunity to learn the secrets of mastery from the eminent athlete.

Arailym Sunkhar, a first-ranker, was almost on a par with her mentor for most of the game, but the champion still prevailed.


- I was very worried. I've been missing workouts for the past few days due to illness. If not for this fact, I probably could have seriously fought for the victory, - says 8th grade student Arailym.

Meanwhile, Serik Aktayev highly appreciated the level of preparation of the guys.


- The guys tried to surprise me, and it makes me very happy. A worthy successor is growing to participate in the world championships, - said Serik Aktaev with joy, who recently returned with a resounding victory from Bishkek, where the III Open Asian Championship in togyzkumalak was held,

– In Bishkek, the Kazakh team showed an excellent level. The competition was attended by about 40 athletes from 13 countries, including the United States, Russia, Iran, China, South Korea and other countries. This suggests that the Kazakh national game - togyzkumalak is of great interest all over the world, - the champion emphasized.
