A CENTRAL track and field stadium in Makhachkala, the capital of Russia’s North Caucasus Republic of Dagestan, will be named after iconic pole-vaulter Yelena Isinbayeva, Dagestani Sports Minister Magomed Magomedov said.


“Yelena Isinbayeva is regularly visiting Dagestan, which is her second homeland,” Magomedov said in an interview with Tass news agency on Wednesday. “It explains our decision to rename the ‘Trud’ stadium after her.”
