"Sports affection grow in childhood, most often-in school. Personally, in my fifth grade, my gym teacher wrote me to the basketball section. Although then I was called to play volleyball, and fencing, even offered to become a football goalkeeper. And what a boy did not rave about football! I, for example, in 1962, did not miss a single match in Tashkent "Pakhtakor": went with friends from home almost in the morning, rehearsed climbed over a tall fence of “Pahtakor”, hiding somewhere in the shade of the trees, patiently waiting to be "rabbits" to sneak into the stands. Fortunately, the benches were then dimensionless, and the fans were compacted on them to the limit-the stadium-in that particularly successful year for the main team of the Republic was always full to failure. But basketball has become a lifelong love for me. "From article by Sergey Danilov in the newspaper " Tashkent’s Evening"(February 2009)”
