UEC-Perm Engines team won ten medals at the Winter Corporate Games

The All-Russian Winter Corporate Festival, organized by the “Trudovye Rezervy” Society, ended last weekend in Kazan. Traditionally, amateur athletes - employees of Russian companies took part in it.

For four days, more than 80 teams of enterprises competed for the title of the strongest sports team in 25 sports, including athletics, hockey, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, basketball, volleyball, CrossFit, tug-of-war, table tennis and trap shooting.

The "UEC-Perm Engines" team, consisting of four people, proved itself worthy in track and field athletics, CrossFit and push-ups. Grinder Roman Petryakov took the first place among men over 35 years old in 100 meters running, and manufacturing engineer Kristina Mekhanoshina had no equal among women in 100 meters running in the same age category. In addition, Christina became the first in push-ups and CrossFit. In the 100-meter sprint among men under 35 years old, the silver medal was brought to the team by the engine fitter Roman Votinov, and the measuring instrument and special-purpose tool inspector Alina Kirichenko took the second place among women under 35 years old category.

The most valuable award for the "UEC-Perm Engines" team was the silver medal in the track and field relay at the All-Russian Winter Festival. The engine builders showed a result of 4.03 minutes, losing only one second to the athletes from the Shokin RPC "Istok" (Moscow Region). A total of 20 teams took part in the relay.

Roman Votinov, team captain, engine fitter, "UEC-Perm Engines":

- For us, these medals in a sense are a victory over ourselves: last year the results were much worse. We train regularly, participate in many competitions - both on the regional and country levels. It was important for the "UEC-Perm Engines" team to show the sports potential of our enterprise.

Kristina Mekhanoshina, manufacturing engineer, "UEC-Perm Engines":

- I participated in the Winter Corporate Games for the first time, so I was not sure of victory. I prepared intensely - I went to the gym, did bodybuilding. And I am very glad that we have won so many awards. Now we start to prepare for the track and field competitions, which will be held in Crimea in June as part of the All-Russian Summer Corporate Festival.
