Students who won the ‘Interschool Sports Tournament’ competitions in Fatih have been given their prize.

Speaking at the ceremony, Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan said, “Every child who begins to do sports activities means a healthy generation free from bad habits”.

The award ceremony was made for the ‘Interschool Sports Tournaments’, organized in 9 branches with the collaboration of Fatih Municipality and District Directorate of National Education. The award ceremony was attended by Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan, District Director of National Education Mucip Kına, principals, gym teachers and students.

Held in Mimar Sinan Stadium, the ceremony saw the awards being given in the categories of little boys and girls, star boys and girls and young boys and girls. The tournaments were attended by a total of 1,700 students from 60 schools. Throughout the tournament, students competed in the branches of basketball, soccer, futsal, ping pong, archery, mini golf, athleticism, volleyball and wrestling. Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan highlighted that more opportunities will be created for young people to do sports more and said that the number of students in the tournaments will increase every day.

“We really hope that sports will be extended to all segments of society” 

Mentioning that he will make Fatih one of the districts where young people have the most convenient access to sports, Fatih Municipality Mayor M. Ergün Turan said, “Every child who begins to do sports activities means a healthy generation free from bad habits. I believe that to the extent we provide you with this opportunity, the number here will exceed 1,700 and become 10,000. We really hope that sports will be extended to all segments of society. If a neighborhood organizes sports activities, the young people here don't have as many bad habits and aren't involved in crime as much. Very soon, Fatih will become a district where young people have the most convenient access to sports despite limited space. In the upcoming period, we are opening the sports facilities and artificial turf soccer fields of our municipality to our sports clubs and nearby schools for free in daytime”.
