In total, 401 at-risk children and teenagers from Ignalina municipality participated in trainings, where local sport celebrities and role models coached them in the certain sport disciplines, such as tennis, skiing and cycling.
Olympic champions – cross-country skiers Kazimiera Strolienė and Modestas Vačiulis – coached children and teenagers and taught them how to use indoor skiing exercise machines and how to prepare for upcoming winter activities.
Tennis stars Alvydas Pūkas, Janas Gotovskij, Danutė Gotovskienė and Gotovskis Česlovas practiced serves with participants and taught them different tennis techniques. Lithuanian floor hockey champions – Šarūnas Lisauskas and Adas Čibiras – and cycling champion Inga Češulienė trained children and teenagers in cycling pedaling techniques and conducted cycling training workouts.
