An honoring ceremony dedicated to Olympic prize-winners was held in Kyzylorda Central Square on Saturday, August 18, Tengrinews.kz reports citing Interfax-Kazakhstan.

Bolatbek Kuandykov, Akim (Governor) of Kyzylorda oblast presented two-time weightlifting Olympic champion Ilya Ilyin with a 75 million tenge certificate (about $507,000).

The Akim of the region presented a Renault Crossover car keys to Kazakhstan’s boxer Marina Volnova who won bronze at the Olympics. “In spite of the fact that Marina competes for Astana city team at present, we still consider her our resident and we are proud of her success,” Kuandykov said.

Weight-lifter Almas Uteshev and free-style wrestler Daulet Niyazbekov got 1 million tenge certificates ($6,757) each.
