Tuva will hold the first "Tevek " championship on the Maslenitsa (carnival)

On March 6, the Maslenitsa festivities will take place in the national park with all the necessary  attributes of  seeing off the Winter:  Russian folk games and contests, including a competition in the fastest eating of pancakes. There will be a pillar with a prize all the way on the top, and the burning of Maslenitsa effigy. The example of  last year, when the Maslenitsa and Shagaa (Lunar new Year) fell to the same date and a competition in "tevek" was held,  turned out to be infectious. It was decided to continue the tradition this year. Only the status of the competition will be designated as "Championship" in "tevek" - the first in history.

Tevek is an international game. It is known that  already in  Old Rus, one of the favorite children's games was "pochekushki", which is an analog of Tuvan  "tevek". A similar type of sport is still widespread in Great Britain, where it is called "socks".

The organizers of this tournament recruited the famous athlete Orgeleer Ondar. As the leader of the Department of Youth activities and sports of the Kyzyl mayor's office, Aidys Sundui notes, if they played with only one foot during  tevek competition until now, this time everything will be according to rules. The championship will help the growing generation to learn about this type of folk games as "dalbyyr on", "chineer on", "kyzyl chin" and others.

Anybody over 10 years of age can participate in the competitions.  For participation in the championship, one has to register at the Department for youth activities and sports at the Yarygin sports complex. And the winners, aside from the fame of the most agile athletes, will also receive prizes.
