Sochi Will Take the III World Winter Games
Comparable in magnitude with the Olympic Games sports competitions will be held on February 22-28, 2017.
The day before, the decision was taken at the 70th General Assembly of the International Military Sports Council (CISM). According to the information agency RIA Novosti, the CSKA will be the main organizer of the competition. Sochi is not accidentally chosen to hold the world tournament. After completion of the triumphant Winter Olympic Games 2014, a great sporting heritage was left in the resort city. Traditionally, the Russian military successfully participates in the summer and winter war games.
Competitions will be held in eight disciplines: biathlon, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, ski orienteering, ski mountaineering, race patrols, indoor sport climbing and short track.
For reference: The CISM is a largest multidisciplinary sports organization that unites 134 states. World Military Games is an analogue of the Olympic Games.
