Recently Yekaterinburg hosted Championship of Russia in arm wrestling among juniors and youth. The representative of the organizing committee Olesya Romanenko shares her impressions of the past event.
– This year more than 600 participants came to the Championship. The competitions were very well organized and the sportsmen liked everything.
We managed to organize an excellent broadcast of the event, it was conducted by real professionals who worked at other national events. Also this year the tournament was visited by a huge number of guests. Athletes, of course, received awards for their efforts, the prize pool in the categories amounted to 30 thousand rubles, in open class the total award was 100 thousand rubles. The highlight was the lottery - we played medals, sleeves, T-shirts, pizza - we just packed everyone with prizes and everyone was very pleased.
It is also important that the tournament was attended by a large number of media representatives, this already indicates a certain level of the event. In addition, media workers did not just come to work, but even held a mini-tournament among themselves.
Regarding the quality of the fights - I want to separately note the team of the Chelyabinsk region, the guys pulled very well.
It is worth noting that Ekaterinburg is a place where any armwrestling competitions are held at a very high level, because the organizers always try to make them as comfortable and interesting as possible. And I think that participation in the organization of such a tournament has become a good experience for me.
According to the results of the Championship, athletes will be able to receive the appropriate ranks and titles, and a team will be formed to represent Russia in the international arena.
