BTSF at a meeting in Ministry of Sport related to the new program for Olympic preparation
Minister of Youth and Sports Vesela Lecheva, Deputy Minister Petar Georgiev and Political Cabinet Advisor Georgi Alexandrov presented the program for "Olympic Preparation and Development of Sports for High Achievement 2023" to the federations administering Olympic sports.
Representatives of all Olympic federations gathered in the hall on the 5th floor of the Sports Palace, who supported the changes.
There will be three directions in which the funding will be carried out - Olympic preparation, Olympic sports with potential (included in the Olympic Games program) and non-Olympic sports. The formation of the budget of the sports federations will be based on an individual approach, taking into account not only the rankings from the Olympic Games, world and European championships, but also from the finals of tournaments, the rankings for world cups and ranking systems, which in certain cases are the only opportunity to win quotas for participation in the Olympic Games and world championships.
