Introduction. Nowadays it becomes especially important to train teenagers and young students via sport and its values, by introducing Olympic education in various educational institutions and universities, based on respect for universal fundamental, aesthetic principles and distribution of mutual respect, the spirit of friendship, partnership and fair play. Despite the apparent success of the Olympic movement in the world, the knowledge of the Olympic history is not public for all Russian university students yet [1-4].

Thanks to the introduction to the process of physical education of students of the ideas of the Olympic movement the university discipline "Physical Education" is activated and raised to a higher educational and training level.

The purpose of the study was to provide a theoretical substantiation and verification in practice of the efficiency of the system approach of forming the Olympic traditions among university students.

Materials and methods. The system approach to the formation of Olympic traditions among young university students served the methodological basis of the research. The main idea of this approach is to use a set of interrelated methods and techniques that promote a purposeful pedagogical influence on the attitudes of students in the course of physical education in the university. The structural elements of the system approach to the formation of Olympic values ​​among students were:

• subject - technical university students;

• object - Olympic education of university students;

• objective: theoretical justification and development of the structure and content of the system approach to the formation of Olympic traditions among university students during physical education;

• content: theoretical and practical foundations of Olympic education;

• forms: hands-on training, lectures, discussions, debates, meetings, competitions, trainings, conferences, etc.;

• methods - all the basic teaching methods;

• techniques – physical exercises and modern Olympic technologies, adapted and designed for physical education of young university students.

The study has been carried out at Siberian State Technological University (Krasnoyarsk) from 2005 to 2014. For nine years of the study more than 100 student-athletes, potential members of the national team of the country in various sports, team members (team sports), etc., entered the university, got higher technical education and continue education.

Results and discussion. Olympic students of SibSTU won 3 medals at the Winter Olympic games-2010 in Vancouver (Canada) (E. Ustyugov – gold and bronze in biathlon; A. Tretiakov – bronze in skeleton) our of 15 medals won by the Russia’s national team (Table).

Fig. 1. The structural model of formation of Olympic traditions among university students

Currently, Podobaev Sergey - the winner of the Cup of Russia 2014 in biathlon, the potential member of the national team of Russia; Kordyuk Petr - the potential member of the Russia’s freestyle ski team, Levochkina Julia - World Champion 2013 in rock climbing, world record holder in speed climbing and others continue their education in the university following the Olympic traditions.

Conclusion. The proposed system of formation of Olympic traditions in the technical university, including step-by-step socio-educational support of student-athletes in the university educational environment, has shown its high efficiency, which is proved by five Olympic medals (3 gold and 2 bronze) won by students, postgraduates and graduates of the technological university (Krasnoyarsk).
