The peculiarity of such competitions is that both military and civilian athletes can take part in them on equal terms. The Ministry of Defense actively cooperates with the public association “Otan,” a kind of analog of the Soviet DOSAAF.

That is, a different result is recorded through every centimeter from the center. The jump is carried out from a height of 1,200 meters. Calculating the direction and speed of the wind is necessary.

– Championship of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Armed Forces, we hold annually. We have a parallel test. Unfortunately, there are no other competitions in Kazakhstan. Sometimes some games take place in Uralsk, sometimes in Shymkent. We are preparing for international tournaments that take place in Asia or Europe. The last time we were at the Asian Championships and the military world championships in 2013, Anna Korostina complained.
The national team of Kazakhstan quite often brought gold medals from various international competitions. Over the 20 years of its existence, athletes won 450 medals, including 93 gold medals. The team has repeatedly become the champion of Asia and
Oceania in various
disciplines of parachuting. The coaching team trained 25 international-class masters of sports.
– If we talk about the World Cup, then Russia has a solid team. China is now becoming a leader. Belarusians, French, Germans, Slovaks. In Asia, we are China, South Korea. More than 35 teams participate in the world championships. In the Asian Championships, there are usually 15-16 teams. This is Bahrain, Qatar, the Emirates, the Philippines, ”said Anna Korostina.
– Now the team is being updated, – the story continues, Lieutenant Colonel Leonid Dudkin. – Athletes who have reached the age limit for military service, leave. We attract young athletes. Among civilians, there are also enough trained athletes. Unfortunately, skydiving is not available for everyone. There has always been stable funding, technical and organizational support in the Armed Forces. Also, our people are still engaged in combat training, during which first jumps are performed. The level is much higher than that of civilian colleagues.
In civilian organizations, you have to pay money to prepare for the competition. Athletes at their own expense acquire expensive equipment, parachutes, are forced to pay for aviation support.
