We follow the successes of our biathletes, who have won gold and silver medals at the championships over the last 2-3 years in Europe and they performed well at the Winter Olympics and the IBU World Cup. Undoubtedly, we are linking this primarily with the activities of the Biathlon Federation. That is why we offered Mr. Torner to head the Winter Sports Association. We are united by the intention to give a fresh impetus to the development of both skiing and luge in our country.  We believe that Dimitri Torner will be able to revive winter sports in Moldova, to boost the development of skiing and luge in Moldova, to develop sports cooperation projects at different levels, to contribute to the popularization of sports and to the training of Moldovan athletes.” 

For his part, Dmitri Torner said that winter sports in Moldova can be significantly scaled up within the Association:

"I would like to thank the participants of the Association for their support and, at the same time, I realize my responsibility towards. We have already discussed the need to build a winter sports complex in Moldova. I am convinced that we will be able to attract investors for implementation this project in the coming years. 

The project is ambitious, but everyone wins - in the sports promotion and popularization, raising healthy generation, growing eventual tourism and development of the infrastructure. At the same time, the next generation of Moldovan athletes - biathletes, skiers, etc. - is necessary to be prepared now, - Torner is confident.
