Then he and his interlocutor discuss the possibility of holding competitions in Yakut jumping at the Olympic Games in Tokyo:
"In September 2021 we have to do it.
Why not? I think, that would be very fun. I'm sure, that @ jumpers.world can do something. We just have to get together and do it.
Most likely, we can agree everything, what's at the end (jump track) some sand will be poured ".
