Every year, Azerbaijan's sports community marks the Day of Physical Culture and Sports on March 5.
Azerbaijan is developing sports to promote a healthy and active lifestyle among Azerbaijani youth and ensure their integration into society.
Overall, the Azerbaijani athletes showed brilliant performances in both domestic and international competitions in 2016, winning 827 medals, of which 18 are Olympic medals.
Today modern sporting complexes operate not only in Baku, but also in almost all regions of the homeland, which have played a significant role in the development of sports in the regions. There were established over 40 Olympic Centers in the regions, while construction of more centers is underway.
