Between 11th and 13th June, the tourist club Belaya Gora had its first experience of participation in mountain sports tourism competitions that took part in the Ostrogozhsk area of the Voronezh region in the settlement Storozhevoye Pervoye.
'The course was quite easy, although we did not have enough physical strength and experience of using ropes. If I train regularly, next year I will manage to do the course easily and will have more fun. And if I show better results, I will be able to do more difficult routes,' said Elizaveta Zhilyakova , one of the participants and a student of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics when talking about the competitions.
According to the results of the Cup in memory of G.A. Menstchikova, the VSU team of students of the Faculties of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics, Physics and Chemistry took fourth place. The male rope team of Evgeniy Tistchuk and Sergei Roldugin took the fourth place and the mixed team of Elizaveta Zhilyakova and Sergei Pavlov – the sixth place.
'Without a doubt, a VSU team will take part in the Cup next year. They will also participate in other competitions, including the ones that take place in September. We are eager to take a prize! But to do so we will have to work hard during our training sessions,' said the Head of the tourist club Belaya Gora Evgeniy Tistchuk.
