Road to Jubilee Games: From mountains to mountains, Fanous travels across Tajikistan exhibiting power in unity!

“Today is a very important day for the Jamat of Tajikistan because we are hosting party of Olympic Fanous.

 

Fanous has a great meaning in Ismailia … also it has meaning in the world, which means … the ability of the weak to become stronger.”

Sentiments of good health, prosperity, peace and harmony ring throughout this video as athletes and jamats across Tajikistan carry Fanous by foot, on horseback, automobiles and even on a helicopter.

 

Athletes Dream & Inspire – Our power is our unity

“On behalf of all Tajik athletes, I congratulate all the athletes from all around the world on this special occasion. Our power is our unity.”

 

– Artur Odibekov, MMA World Champion

Fanous - Tajikistan - Ismaili Centre, Dushanbe

“Strengthening of the physical energy in a healthy body, with the help of a healthy mind and a healthy spirit is very important and the main aim of sport games is exactly strengthening this ability in human person.

 

Carrying around Fanous is of utmost importance for us and we are indeed happy that today Fanous is with the Tajik Jamat.

 

In addition, we wish that the Fanous event also brings peace and harmony for each Tajik in and out of Tajikistan.

 

This should become one more push for the development of our Tajikistan.

 

We pray that we live in peace in Tajikistan, and we wish good health and happiness for every Tajik and every citizen of Tajikistan.”
