Recall, on January 21st, on the territory of the Lena Pillars National Park in Yakutia, in the homeland of the Games, a solemn ceremony of lighting the Fire of 2nd Winter Children of Asia International Sports Games was held. In a sacred place for the all-Sakha people, a ritual part was held: the elder lit the fire in the ancient way - with stones from the Lena Pillars. He consecrated and blessed the fire, and then, as a sign of the purity of his soul and thoughts, he gave it to the child. On January 22nd, the Torch relay started in the city of Yakutsk. The Olympic champion Mr. Pavel Pinigin led the torch relay in Yakutsk.
