At one of the sports facilities in an interview with journalist of RIA “Novosti” Patriarch Kirill said, “I believe that sports bring great benefit to men. Exercising and most importantly psychological training that accompanies the person, who is engaged in sports, have a very positive impact on the formation of a person’s character. It helps men to produce remarkable qualities: a person must be bold, courageous, and capable of reasonable risk.And when it is a team sport, what is also important is mutual support, team spirit, true solidarity,” said the Primate.

According to the patriarch, everyone should engage in sports regardless of their profession. “It creates wonderful human qualities that are needed in life, and it doesn’t matter what you may be doing – whether you are a doctor, an engineer, businessman, politician or a priest,” added the Patriarch.

In respond to questions from the channel “Russia -24,” the head of the Russian Orthodox Church praised the quality of the Olympic facilities, the work of their designers and builders, and also noted that the presence of such infrastructure will successfully prepare the country for future sports. “But I would like to wish the athletes, may this Olympics be successful for you,” said the Patriarch.

The opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi will be held on February 7th.
