This year we have carried out renovations here and improved the quality of the water. I am sure that the championship will be held in comfortable conditions, at a high level and will allow us to identify the strongest in the competition. Run and swim fast, shoot straight!

On behalf of the command of the Samara garrison, the head of the House of Officers of the Samara garrison, Honored Worker of Culture of the Russian Federation, Reserve Colonel Alexander Nazarenko wished new achievements and victories to the military athletes.

I wish you to win for Russia! “

Then the relay baton of the celebration passed to the young parachutists – pupils of the sports school of the Samara branch of CSKA. At the opening of the championship, the director of the sports school Olga Nekrashevich and the chairman of the Federation of parachuting of the Samara region Dmitry Bochkarev presented them with test classification books. Each of them was awarded the third sports category for fulfilling the norms and requirements of the Unified All-Russian Sports Classification for 2018-2021 in the sport of “Parachuting”. During the year of training, the guys diligently mastered the “parachute science”, showed excellent results and, most importantly, they made each from 4 to 16 jumps!

Among the girls, the largest number of exits to the sky – 16 – was made by Ksenia Babaeva. The girl shared her emotions with the CSKA / Samara press center after the presentation of the record books:

“I have not missed a single lesson, not a single jump, because I want to go to another level in this sport. The first 2-3 jumps were very scary, and then the fear passed and it became very interesting. It is very exciting and great to receive the first document proving that you are a real parachutist among the officers – Masters of Sports! “

Another young parachutist Alexander Makarov has 15 jumps behind his shoulders: “I have been practicing for a year, I tried very hard not to miss, because parachuting is very exciting and useful: thinking and physical performance develops, character is strengthened. I became more confident and courageous, I am not afraid to get out of the helicopter first. I am glad that I received my first grade book on the opening day of the championship of the Armed Forces, I saw serious athletes, and the parade of the participating teams is very beautiful! ” – added the soldier.

We add that the winners of the championship will be included in the national team of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to participate in the army competitions of a higher level, scheduled for 2022.

The championship will end on September 10: the closing ceremony and awarding ceremony will take place at the USK Stara-Zagora stadium.
