The XX All-Russian School Olympiad on Physical Culture is over
On April 18, the closing ceremony was held on the stage of the Regional
Palace of Children’s and Youth Creativity. Representatives of the host country,
jury members, sports officials of the region congratulated the Olympians. Boris
Kostishko, the Rector of USU, wished the participants not to get used to the
winner’s syndrome - life constantly gives surprises, victories are replaced by
defeats and one should never rest on one’s laurels. Chairman of the jury
Nikolay Chesnokov said how many there have been “victorious” regions this year
- representatives of half of the subjects whose delegations participated in the
Olympiad return home with awards. Among the winners are two Ulyanovsk schoolchildren.
The holiday turned out to be bright and colorful - the stages of the awards ceremony were interspersed with concert numbers and congratulatory speeches. Upon completion, new friends from different cities have been taking photographs, for a long time. They have exchanged contacts, the guys thanked Ulyanovsk residents for their hospitality, and they in turn invited them to the next Olympiad in Ulyanovsk.
