The most difficult stage of the competition from the point of view of psychology is the climbing wall. The weather was not very favorable, it started raining, slippery. It was necessary to cope with emotions. The second stage, orienteering, is the most difficult in terms of the physical preparation of the team, it is necessary to run about 9 kilometers over rough terrain with weapons and a loaded backpack, also at an altitude of more than 2 thousand meters above sea level, so training should be at the level. The team did it, the guys are strong, they have collected all the points, all the good fellows, “- shared his impressions a member of the team of champions of 2020, instructor of the Airborne Forces team for mountain training, Senior Sergeant Ivanov Grigory.
