1988 Olympic Champion Mikhail Deviatyarov told that he would participate in the Race of Stars in Luzhniki to popularize skiing.

Devyatyarov, 63, has been announced to take part in the ” Race of Stars”, which will be held on February 4 and will start at 1:00 p.m. Moscow time. Many other Olympic champions will also take the start.

– I don’t prepare specially, but, of course, I skate. As long as I’m ready, I run. Our sports youth has already passed, so we participate for the interest of ski enthusiasts, in the popularization of skiing in Russia. I have nothing to prove, age after all. I want to emphasize that holding such events benefits everyone: the race is broadcast on , our leaders will gather in the same place, and the fans will be delighted to see the Olympians. Despite the fact that I am 63 years old, I run marathons. Here with Nikolai Semenovich Zimyatov last spring we took part in the Yugra ski marathon, we covered 25 kilometers. Enjoy the race, encourage the rest of the participants. We are trying to create a holiday, – said Devyatyarov.

On February 5, the Luzhniki Stadium will host the “ Race of the Stars” with the participation of biathletes. Departure – 13:00 Moscow time. Both “” races will be broadcast live. You can also watch live broadcasts on the thematic channels of the holding and on the matchtv.ru and sportbox websites.
