Big, almost three meters in height silver sculpture of the sportsman with a baton shows us slender and athletic sportsman with the baton in the right hand. The sculpture was placed on low and pink pedestal.
The sculpture was made with good attention to the details, unfortunately it is in bed condition. The sportsman lost a finger on the left hand, silver coating was fleeced. Probably pink pedestal was red but without attention faded and a plaster partly fell. Not far from the sculpture on similar pedestal there is a big vase, probably from the cast iron.
The sculpture was established in the yard of the living building no. 13k1 on Marshal Vasilevsky Street. Unfortunately who created and when created this sculpture it is not known. But according to the style of the sculpture it was made in the time of impetuous development of the physical culture training program GTO.

Go along the building 13k1 till its center where you will find this sculpture of the sportsman with a baton (Marshal Vasilevsky Street bld. 13k1). Not far from the sculpture you also find big vase.
