VOLUNTEERS TO CHILDREN: THE HEROS OF OUR TIME
BY ALEXANDRA LOITARENKO | AUGUST 28, 2018
On August 27th at the sports ground of Khabarovsk city, workout competitions were held for the Cup «Pokolenium», organized by the Regional Center «Territorial Youth Center for Social Education and Health.»
The day before there were workout competitions in Khabarovsk, where more than 40 sportsmen from different regions of the Khabarovsk Territory took part. There were children from Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Bikin and Chegdomyn. The competition involved not only professional athletes, but also amateurs.
Yevgeny Demin, Chairman of the Khabarovsk Krai Youth Committee, also attended the event; he talked with the participants and answered a number of questions of interest to them.
The children performed various gymnastic elements brilliantly. Some tricks were breath-taking to look at. When one of the athletes fell from the bar, while breaking his face and bleeding, he still continued his gymnastic trick and finished it with dignity. This speaks of courage and the will to win.
Participants in the competition were divided into age groups 9-11 years, 12-15 years, 16-17 years, 18 and older. Workout battle implies a competition, so the judges had to choose the best ones. Sometimes it was very difficult, for example, boys from the group of 9-11 years, although they are small, showed they were at the highest level. Besides the boys, the girls also participated; they mostly showed gymnastic tricks on the ground.
Since this event took place outside, many people could see the performances of all the athletes.
The Center for Medical Prevention was also present for the competitions, where you could measure pressure, temperature, etc.
Little Khabarovsk citizens who saw the performances of athletes, tried to pull themselves up several times to make a coup on the horizontal bars. The new generation is improving, and Workout is one more step towards this.
