BİLAL ERDOĞAN: IT WILL BE A START TO INTRODUCE İZNİK

Speaking at the press conference, President of the World Ethnosports Confederation Erdoğan thanked the states of the Turkic world for keeping traditional sports alive in the most vibrant way, and said, “Every year, the World Nomad Games continued to be held with more athletes and participation from more countries. We can hold the World Nomad Games in 2022, which should be held in 2020 due to the epidemic. The fact that the games are held in Iznik has a very serious meaning. The first three organizations were held by the “Isik Lake”, which they call the pearl of Kyrgyzstan. As we get to know and see Lake Iznik, we will understand that it is the pearl of our country. Although Iznik has such a deep historical past, I think we have neglected it. The Games will be a start for better recognition of Iznik,” he said.

Stating that they also received some criticisms while working on the World Nomad Games, Erdoğan said, “We encountered some objections in some environments, such as ‘The world has settled down and you are still trying to popularize the nomadic culture’. However, just as in professionalized sports, the amateur spirit sees tactics. You become a role model. There are also such virtues of nomadism. We think that there are still things that we need to protect in nomadism for human beings who have settled down. We want to draw attention to these. With traditional sports; We want to display a stance that is nature-friendly and compassionate to people.”
