Moscow 18th August 2006
Dear organizers and participants of Adrenalin Games Russian Open!
The idea of Games has great possibilities to show and compare the level of development of extreme sports in Russia and abroad. The young generation forms its new kinds of sport, but competitions are still based on the principles that share all the athletes in the world. The fast development of extreme sports opens the possibility for them to be included in the program of Olympic Games.
I am sure, that National Olympic Committees of countries-participants will grant necessary help and support to new sports.
The hosting of extreme sports competition and establishing of federation may be a good stimulus for recognition of such sport in Russia and in the whole world as well.
Undoubtedly, participants from Russia are inspired by deep and glorious traditions of Russian sport. I hope that competition will be held with principles of fair play and will show the best athletes of the new generation.
With best wishes,
