On October 10 Juche 102 (2013) finals of various events in the field of mass-based sports of the National Inter-Provincial Sports Games took place in the presence of Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un at the Pyongyang Indoor Stadium.
Played that day were such traditional and recreational games as ssirum (Korean wrestling?Tr) and running with balls in the arms and on the head.
As their Supreme Leader was present, the players and spectators alike were full of happiness and the stadium grew astir.
Whenever the players displayed their forte, Kim Jong Un clapped his hands and sometimes waved his hand.
After the games were over, he said that the inter-provincial games should be held every year so as to encourage the provinces to develop mass-based sports and make enthusiasm for sports sweep across society. If mass-based sports were developed, he stressed, all the working people will be prepared to make a positive contribution to labour and national defence with sturdy physique.
The final matches of the inter-provincial games held on an anniversary day of the founding of the WPK constituted another occasion in stoking up the flames of sports across society and developing mass-based sports.
