Each of us gave 100% on the appointed day. Despite the victory, there’s still room for improvement. We’ll be training harder, scrutinizing our lineups and improving them, so that no rivals could catch us off guard.’
NivaStroy won silver. According to their captain Ivan Kostyrkin, Head of Major Construction Works Department, the team was initially determined to win a prize. What’s more, two participants from their team play volleyball professionally.
And finally, EkoNivaAgro-Vostochnoye won bronze.
‘We’ve already taken part in tournaments like that, but it’s the first time when we were lucky to compete with the left bank, as it was determined by draw’, comments the team captain Dmitriy Muravlyov, an engineer. ‘The game was really exciting and intense. And the organization was superb! We’ll try to plan our tactics and design our own sports secrets by the next competitions.’
