From 20 to 23 October in the main base of the Northern Fleet – the city of Severomorsk, traditional sports competitions among military personnel of the command profile called “Commander starts” will take place. Several dozen officers from platoon commanders to formation commanders will take part in them. They will demonstrate their strength, agility, endurance and accuracy in the gym, pool and shooting range.

The opening and closing ceremonies, as well as part of the athletics competitions, will be held at the universal sports complex “Start” in Severomorsk.

Last year, for the first time, female military personnel took part in the “Commander’s Starts” as part of the teams. The victory was won by a representative of the Air Force and Air Defense Army of the Northern Fleet, Lieutenant of the Medical Service Valentina Verbenkina. In total, she scored 3574 points, showing the best result in four-event (shooting from a Makarov pistol, swimming, running and flexion-extension of the arms in a lying position).

According to the results of the competition, the participants who showed the best sports results will go to Moscow to participate in the all-army competition “Commander starts”. The winning team will be led by one of the highest officers at the level of a formation commander or deputy fleet commander.

In the Northern Fleet, the Commander Launches competition has been held for the seventh year, each time attracting an increasing number of officers.
