Speech of the Temporary Acting Governor of Ugra Natalya Komarova at the opening ceremony of the 18th Deaf Olympic Winter Games of 2015

Good evening, dear friends.

Welcome to the 18th Deaf Olympic Winter Games. Not far from here the two great Siberian rivers – Ob and Irtysh blend their waters. Since old times these rivers connected people living on their shores.  Our games united athletes from 27 countries of the world.

To share our energy to you, people of Ugra got the flame for Deaf Olympic Games fire t in the ancient way. I am sure, this flame will serve as a right and brightest beacon for new records which we all expect at the 18th games.

Today and in the next few days we all will be accompanied by Deaf Olympic Games symbols. On the Games emblem we see a hand – a sign of understanding each other without words, and at the same time is the Khanty black grouse – a symbol of wealth and prosperity. I wish you prosperity in medals and treasures in friends and emotions.

You have such friends who made everything for this Games organization, and I would like to thank them all.    All volunteers, all residents of Khanty-Mansiysk and, of course,  representatives of the International committee of Deaf sport and Deaf Olympic Games committee of Russia, without whom we would never meet here. May this meeting become the first, but not the last. We will always wait for you in Ugra and think about you and be happy with your progress.
