Brazilian Sports Minister Agnelo Queiroz said he wanted to expand Russian-Brazilian cooperation in sports
"Good relations have been established between our countries in sports," he said before President Putin's visit to Brazil, "but we would like to expand them." Federal Agency for Physical Culture, Sport and Tourism director Vyacheslav Fetisov's visit to Brazil, which begins Wednesday, will allow the two countries to expand their contacts and establish a useful dialogue, Mr. Queiroz said. He said Brazil was ready to provide a large amount of assistance to Russian sports. He hopes to share Brazil's experience. "Brazilian soccer has great authority in the world arena," he said. "I believe that cooperation in this area, which Brazil has a strong position, will help Russia develop a national school." "We can send our coaches to Russia," he noted. The minister said that Russian teams could go to Brazil for certain periods of time. In return, Russia could help Brazil develop the sports that Russian athletes are traditionally strong in. Mr. Queiroz said track and field, weightlifting, gymnastics, swimming, water polo, and freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling are underdeveloped in Brazil but highly developed in Russia. "Despite the immense distance between our states and the differences in culture," he said, "the language of sports will allow us to come closer together more quickly than the efforts of politicians and businessmen." Mr. Queiroz also said Russia and Brazil could closely cooperate in physical fitness programs for young people.
