 I am first time in Karaganda and I have very nice impressions. It`s seen, that kids of Karaganda have more possibilities  to do sport, of course, Gennady Golovkin, which is popular in USA gives a big stimulus for this. Moreover, we had a great conversation in the akimat of Karaganda region and told about development of economical cooperation.  I visited ecological museum , after that I met with participants of Americanexchange program, they are volunteers, teachers of local educational institutions.  In my opinion Its important to get acquainted with the region and people, who live there. Especially we strive to expand our exchange programs, - said John Pommershaim. 

The next morning Deputy Ambassador of the USA took part in the bike ride through the central streets of Karaganda. This offer was by Karaganda livers, who study within American educational programs.

Several of them are compulsive cyclists . Honestly, I like bicycle since childhood. And in spite of hot weather I decided to see the city live, said he.

During the meeting with young sportsman of Karaganda he gave to them a book of American author Cristopher Cardozo «Great wars» , saying about him delight with the talent of Golovkin and considers him a real warrior. Deputy Ambassador of the USA wished good lucks to champion in upcoming fight.
