With the money of the Agricultural Production Cooperative of Svislach the book of the famous basketball player Ivan Edeshko «Three seconds and not only...» was republished.
It was published in Moscow in 2011. The idea of republishing the book in the Grodno region came to Sergei Bezzubov and Alexander Kurlovich (the former director of the NOC RB representative office in the Grodno region) as a part of the series «The Stars of the Grodno Sport». And the chairman of the Agricultural Production Cooperative of Svislach Vasily Gustyr supported this initiative. After all, Ivan Edeshko was born in the Grodno region, the village of Stetski. The brother of the famous basketball player Eustathius wrote a preface to the book and a poem dedicated to Ivan. The circulation is 250 copies.
At the end of March the international basketball tournaments were to take place: in Grodno – among veterans and in Skidzyel – among girls born in 2005, as well as among boys in the Grodno district 3x3 in Svislach. It was planned that Ivan Edeshko would come to them and sign books for the competitors. But the tournaments were rescheduled. Ivan Edeshko promised that he would definitely come to them from Moscow. By the way, on 25 March, the Olympic champion turned 75 years old.
As a part of the series «The Stars of the Grodno Sport» the books about Yadviga Skorobogataya, Vyacheslav Sivakov, Elena Volchetskaya have already been published. Next in turn – Alexander Triput’s regional sports dispensary.
