Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) — Physical culture and sports activities are getting brisk in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea as spring comes.
Seen everywhere in the country are people, young and old, who are doing morning exercises including running, walking and Taekwon-Do.
Physical culture and sports events were held in Pyongyang and other parts of the country on the Day of Sports for March with the attendance of working people of various strata and school children and youth.
In the DPRK, the second Sunday of every month has been instituted as the Day of Sports.
On the day, physical culture and sports events are held at institutions, enterprises, co-op farms and schools. Among the events are health-promoting Taekwon-Do, mass rhythmic gymnastics, collective running and tug of war.
Mass sports activities are held. Typical of them are the traditional sports contests of officials of the national institutions for Paektusan Cup, national Korean wrestling matches for Grand Bull Prize, national folk sports games of agricultural working people.
The physical culture and sports games held in different areas of the country are introduced through mass media.
All the working people’s organizations including the youth league and trade unions are inducing working people, youth and children to take part in the mass physical culture activities on their own accord so that they can build their bodies and firmly prepare themselves for national defence and labor.
The brisk mass physical culture and sports activities give a glimpse of revolutionary stamina and optimism pervading the whole country.
