Technogenic development of the northern territories of the Russian Federation is accompanied by the migration of significant flows of people there, who are usually poorly adapted to new climate-geographical living conditions. In the study the authors have tested a hypothesis regarding sports activities preventing disorders of bone mineralization in females in the conditions of the northern regions of Russia. The base study included young women aged 18–24 (the first generation of migrants from the central part of Russia) permanently residing in the city of Khanty-Mansiysk (Russia). Group 1 (n=15) included young women not engaged in regular sports. Group 2 (n=15) included young women practicing skiing. Group 3 (n=15) included young women doing volleyball. Group 4 (n=15) included young women doing judo. The reference group included 15 young women doing sports and living in the city of Tyumen (Russia). Group 1 subjects had symptoms of delay in bone mineral density compared to their peers residing in less severe climate. Young women doing sports did not have these symptoms. Young female volleyball players had the highest bone mineral density values. Young women – descendants of migrants doing sports permanently residing in the northern regions of Russia have no disorders of bone mineralization compared to their peers doing sports.

Keywords: bone mineral density, sports activities, climatic conditions, young women.
